    Melaka Mosque
    This is a peaceful and serene place set right on the waterfront of Melaka's reclaimed 'island'. The easiest way to get there is to Catch a GRAB. Gowns and scarves are provided for women visitors at the gate entrance. Take the time to admire the dome and then go outside and catch the breeze off the water. At night the minaret and Mosque is lit up - looks lovely

    Juma Solat
    Good that our visit was with Friday Pray Time or as they say it in Malay: Juma Solat. Straits mosque or floating mosque. Located closed to the shore standing on pillar that disappears when there is tide. Amazing structural beauty, spherical shaped mosque.

    Beautiful mosque during sunset
    The mosque was built on the water and seemed to be a popular tourist spot to watch sunset in Malacca. And yes, it looked romantically beautifully. However, the beach right next to the mosque's left offered a better view.

As recommended by Lonely Planet we arrived at 7pm for sunset spectacle only to find the temple grounds are only open from 5.30-6.30 pm ie. Too soon for the lights and sunset. Many people turned up to be turned away by guards who were clearly fed up with explaining over and over. There is nowhere close by to view from either because of building work that clearly has been going on a long time. A long way out even by Grab and a complete waste of time.

We made a visit to this place before returning home. It’s refreshing and claiming having the mosque building above the the straits of Malacca river bank.

As this a place of worship we did not made our way inside the main prayer hall. Do note to wear decently with long pants and shirts with sleeves for ladies otherwise you be rejected entry into the prayer hall.

The building looks nice but is surrounded by fences making it difficult to see and photograph unless getting up close. I understand and fully respect this is a religious building. The dress code is quite strict though and is worth bearing in mind beforehand. Men must have their legs fully covered, and ladies must have their arms, legs, and hair covered to enter the grounds.
We eventually found a dirt path behind the under-construction museum and after a bit of scrambling over rocks and litter were able to get a better photo.

The mosque is under repair, so it was closed. If you want to take pictures, it can only be done from the lot next to it, which we were told is a private property. You must buy a bottle of water per person if you want to access it!

Be warned, if it's closed you won't be able to get near the mosque let alone inside it. Not unreasonable and my fault for assuming that I would at least be able to see the outside. Not the case however, as a very friendly and polite man made it clear, apologetically, that I could go no father than the outside gate.

The mosque itself was nice. Nothing as elaborate as Turkish mosques, but on par with other Malaysian mosques.

The real treat is at sunset. Go to the jetty at the left to get a sunset photo to post on your wall at home, as the mosque itself lights up in green.

The Mosque is currently closed for repairs but you couldn’t even get near it due to security, although I did see some people go in. What made the experience worse was the nearby workers asking money for photos in nearby location. Such a shame.

I enjoyed myself at the seaside, waiting for sunset. I reached about 6pm plus, and the mosque was closed for visitation. However, I sat outside the mosque and waited for the sunset. The evening view of mosque is magnificent. They started to solat around 7pm. If you pray, please join them.
