Neighborhood: Town Centre
Overview

Purported to be the oldest mosque in Malaysia, it was built in 1728 by one Dato Shamsudin. Architecturally, it is also one of the most visually arresting and unique mosques without any discernible parallel or resemblance anywhere else in the country. The roof is multi-tiered and shaped like a pyramid, while a towering standalone minaret calls out, at predesignated hours, to the faithful for prayers. Visitors are welcome but advised to follow rules and common practices within the premises: be decently dressed—no shorts or miniskirts and tank tops.
