The Kuching mosque was built at the same site of the first mosque built in Kuching in 1852. The first mosque build there wa just a simple wooden mosque which was later replaced twice with bigger mosque.

The present Kucing Mosque was completed in 1968 and is one of the city's most striking landmarks. The mosque's magnificent gilded cupolas rise high above the city's skyline. Its majestic silhouette catches the eye and can be seen for miles around.

The mosque is located in one of the older part of the city at the riverside. It is close to the Jalan Gambier, which is noted for its Indian spice shops, herbal medicine stores and Chinese groceries.

Address: Jalan Masjid, Kuching.
Directions: At the old part of the city, look out for its high rise gilded cupolas.
