#8 of 15 in Historic Sites in Melaka
Kampung Kling Mosque is an old mosque in Melaka, Malaysia.The Kampung Kling Mosque is situated at Jalan Tukang Emas, also known as "Harmony Street" because of its proximity to the Sri Poyatha Moorthi Temple and Cheng Hoon Teng Temple.HistoryThe original structure built by Indian Muslim traders in 1748 was a wooden building and in 1872, it was rebuilt in brick. The mosque is one of the traditional mosques in Melaka, which still retains its original design. The architectural design of the mosque is a cross between Sumatran, Chinese, Hindu, and the Melaka Malay. The minaret, ablution pool and entrance arch were built at the same time with the main building. The kampung kling mosque is named based on the place where Indian traders dwell in that place called Kampung Kling.The minaret resembles a pagoda. The mosque also has a blend of English and Portuguese glazed tiles, Corinthian columns with symmetrical arches in the main prayer hall, a Victorian chandelier, a wooden pulpit with Hindu and Chinese-style carvings, and Moorish cast iron lamp-posts in the place of ablution for pre-prayer cleansing.

    Entrance from the coast in the spring on the left side toward the front limbs and mouth. You must wear cloth skin to hide the women. In a quiet atmosphere, I felt blessed.

    Lovely description of the mosque by local faithful lady. A peaceful retreat during day between prayer times with hijab and tunics for visitors to borrow as required for modesty when visiting inside.no shoes of course.

    Regarded as a historical site, which obviously comes with back then history. I couldn't go inside because I was concern if my knee length pants and t-shirts is considered decent. So, I just stood at the corner to view its architecture, while heading to other spots as we walked further on.

Where to stay in Melaka

Luxury hotels in opulent buildings frequently sit right alongside budget accommodations in Melaka. Side streets and alleyways offer secluded rooms in attractive buildings that are often as grandiose as regal hotels. For budget lodgings, look for the main arterial roads, which lack the charm of the rest of the town, but provide comfortable rooms at reduced rates.
