Kampung Kling Mosque, Melaka

(3.7/5 based on 120+ reviews on the web)
Kampung Kling Mosque is an old mosque in Malacca, 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.

  • Despite the fact that this is a mosque, a glance recognized Hindu features. Old building absorbed all the architectural styles of all religions in the region. Recommend for inspection

  • One of the oldest architecture in the Jonker Walk area apart from Cheng Hoon Teng Temple, it has beautiful and unique architecture, a crossover with Arabic and oriental design
  • People there are lovely, allow pictures to be taken.. Beautiful architecture, and have a history of 300 years!!
  • Masjid tertua yang penuh barakah....
  • Precious style Kling mosque. Unlike other places in the mosque roof, unique place where smaller-scale but rather the constant depreciation.

  • 很特別的清真寺,融合多元文化。和一般看到的圓頂清真寺不太一樣,剛好非常符合馬六甲過往多元文化融合的特點。建議在出發前做做功課,可以更能理解。
