  • Kampung Hulu Mosque is a mosque located in the heart of Melaka City in Melaka Tengah district, Melaka. Built in 1728, the Kampung Hulu Mosque in Melaka is the third old mosque in Malaysia which is still in use and located on its original site. The mosque is located at the junction of Kampung Hulu Jalan Masjid and Jalan Masjid in Melaka, in an area now filled with shops operated by Chinese traders. The mosque is built by local residents with Dutch funding during the occupation of Melaka by the Dutch East Indies Company (abbreviation V.O.C.). The mosque was built as a result of a policy change by the Dutch government, which highlighted the diversity of religious holdings. Prior to the arrival of the Dutch in 1624, the Portuguese colonialists had come from 1511, destroying the remains of non-Christian devotional houses in Melaka. Between what the Portuguese destroyed was the first mosque built in Melaka, which is supposedly located opposite the current Stadhuys site. The Dutch government has commissioned the Kapitan to lead local residents in the construction of their synagogue, Dato 'Samsuddin Bin Arom, an immigrant from China who had converted to Islam, commissioned the Dutch government to build Kampung Hulu Mosque. The original building was later repaired by Sheikh Al Omar bin Hussain Al-Attas.
  • One of the oldest masjid in Malaysia and in Malacca state. Beautiful architecture from inside and outside. Food is served on specific days. Spacious masjid to accommodate hundreds of worshippers. Lectures are often held by different sheikhs. Ladies prayer hall is on the right side. Well maintained by the authorities. If you visit any masjid, please donate generously for the development and to run the expenses. It's sadqa e jariah (on going charity) even after death.
