This beautiful mosque is a must visit, as it is really beautiful and old. Before you head over be sure to wear decent clothes and act respectfully. For more info about Malaysia check the WNFdiary blog.

Visited here after long walk and amazed by the view. They provide tour for non-moslems who want to understand about the history behind. The place was surprisingly filled with cool breeze , nice to stop here to relax a while.
