Architecturally intriguing, Kampung Kling Mosque 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: do not, among other things, appear in shorts or mini skirts.
