"Eye Catching" Kapitan Keling Mosque Tip by travelpug

Kapitan Keling Mosque, Penang: 11 reviews and 17 photos

  Masjid Kapitan Keling
by travelpug

This simply mosque is very clean and eye catching. It is so modest compared to other newer and bigger mosques in Kuala Lumpur area. But I like it's low-keyed and humble feeling. First built in 1801 by British India Company. However, the current mosque is built in 1916 by the Indian-Muslim community here.

Surrounding this mosque are goldsmiths!
