The place of worship was then much simpler.
Synopsis Welcome to the oldest mosque of Penang! The mosque's exterior is painted ochre yellow, with white marble accents and towering ceilings.
The whitewashed mosque is topped with large golden-yellow Mughal-style domes, crescents and stars and features a single, typical Indian-Islamic minaret from which the sound of the azan call to prayer can be heard.
This is the largest historic mosque in George Town, founded around 1800.
It is situated on the corner of Buckingham Street Lebuh Buckingham and Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling.
The mosque was not rebuilt, but rather enlarged, in accordance with practice.
