Kampong Kling Mosque
What we say:
A mosque has stood in this spot since 1748, making it among the oldest in all of Malaysia.
It's not just notable for its age, but also its unique architecture that blends Sumatran, Indian, Malay and even Chinese elements.
The minaret looks a lot like a pagoda and if you look closely at the wooden carvings inside you'll spot Chinese lucky symbols. If you hear the Muslim call to prayer it isn't coming from here but from Kampong Hulu Mosque on the same street.
