"Kangar - Beautiful "Alwi Mosque"" Negeri Perlis Things to Do Tip by SLLiew

Negeri Perlis Things to Do: 8 reviews and 17 photos


Approaching Kangar from Kuala Perlis, we saw two mosques appearing back to back. The larger one in the background with the grey domes is the famous Masjid Alwi or known as Masjid Kangar. It used to be the State Mosque. The new state mosque is gold domed and located in Arau the Royal Capital of Perlis.

Back to Masjid Alwi. It has a long history being built in 1910 with its beautiful Moorish style. It is a pride of Kangar folks although many new buildings has been built in town.
