Absolutely a must see while staying down in Malacca. Centuries old. Still in daily use today. I recommend.

The mosque is located in the heart of Melaka's China town and is a stone throw from the Cheng Hood temple. It s quite old and well preserved. The exterior of the mosque gives a Chinese impression with the minaret looking like a pagoda. The interior of the mosque contains a mix of classical architecture and hindu and chinese decorations...

Not really in average architecture you are seeing around. I didn't go inside, but as the sun was going down I took some nice photos with the light reflexion..Like the other building, I had to photoshop them, to hide things around who don't belong there, walls awaiting a brush & paint....etc

A nice-looking historical mosque that is a bit more interesting looking at night with the green glow of lights off-setting the white tower. It remains a working mosque with the usual restrictions on entry.

I liked the building and it was in the heart of the touristy area. It isn't a tourist thing and more of a local one which makes it all the better. It is quiet in comparison to the surrounding area especially on the weekends when the area becomes a night market with smells, tastes and trinkets from across Southeast Asia.... More

Beautiful mosque in the middle of the old town. Well preserved and rather unique architecture. The minaret resembles a pagoda. There are English and Portuguese glazed tiles within, Corinthian columns with symmetrical arches in the main prayer hall, a wooden pulpit with Hindu and Chinese-style carvings, and Moorish cast iron lamp-posts in the place of ablution for pre-prayer cleansing. In... More

Recommended to visit. It is interesting to see how its design has been influenced by the other religions of the area, e.g. the minaret is shaped like a pagoda :) Also nice courtyard, with the pond, the cemetery and the big mango tree.

It is named based on the place where Indian traders dwell in that place called Kampung Kling. We saw the three tiered pyramid shape roof and a pagoda like minaret. The interior features English and Portuguese glazedtiles, corinthian colums and arches, a Victorian chandelier.

Nothing spectacular about this mosque. It is not the shiniest, not the biggest. What makes it different is it's mixture of Chinese, Malay, Indian and Arabic architecture blending into one. Somehow, it works. It has it's own flavor and character as a mosque. It also helped that right in front of it, there is a quaint, old but teeming with... More
