  • 阿督卡清真寺是回教清真寺。位於小印度旁邊。 除鞋後可以進入, 入面很漂亮, 有人會向你講解(雖然我唔係好聽得明)。 
  • Close to the hotel, visit partly walk on foot. Enter from the entrance side and even non-believers like in out freedom, acceptance of tourists also seemed ready. Was just after the rain, take off your shoes in the environment, as was forward, but partly because the only exterior with views of surrounding. Unlike Hindu temples and calm tone, has been with the building of a simple design.

  • Was near the hotel where we stayed, so I went. At the entrance, visitors are welcome! Of a visitor center signs and go around the perimeter, because first of all come so far! Of such things are written. However, if hesitant, followers of kotchikotchi suddenly sitting with at the entrance of the mosque told me. (And I think) inside the Mosque but also beautiful with a green and white, and very relaxed atmosphere. When entering, take off shoes and socks that go.
