Jalan Kampung Hulu, Malacca / Melaka 75200
The mosque is situated north of Jalan Tukang Emas, also known as “Harmony Street” because of its proximity to the Sri Payyatha Viyanagar Moorthi Temple and Cheng Hoon Teng Temple. The architectural design of the mosque is a cross between Sumatran, Chinese, Hindu, and the Melaka Malay. The minaret, ablution pool and entrance arch were built at the same time with the main building. The minaret resembles a pagoda. Commissioned by the Dutch during their colonial occupation, the mosque was a result of a new policy of religious pluralism. Their colonial predecessors, the Portuguese, had destroyed all signs of non-Christian establishments upon their occupation in 1511. The mosque should not be confused with Kampung Kling Mosque, located a few blocks to the south; it also has a pagoda-like minaret. It looks unique and this heritage building is matching the historical town here. It´s far from downtown, come here just to admire.
