Kampong Kling’s Mosque

2-kampung-kling-mosque-melaka

Architecturally intriguing, it is one of the oldest surviving mosques in the country. The Sumatran influence is readily apparent from its three-tiered pyramid-shaped roof, in place of the more conventional dome. The free-standing minaret resembles a pagoda, again reflecting an infusion of Oriental influences. Freshly painted, it continues to serve faithfully as a popular venue of worship for the local Muslim community.

The mosque is open to visitors but do observe the rules and common practices of the premises. (e.g. do not, among other things, appear in shorts or mini skirts)
