An old mosque with so much activity; people are so nice and permisive with tourists; good oportunity to heal yourself.

People inside are so nice; if you are a beginner they're trying to teach how to clean your feet and head; again, great spiritual experience if you are in the mood

I stopped here for praying and i kinda like because it is situated in the middle of people goes by, very convenience. As for the architecture..so historic, and big enough!

The architecture is beautiful and as the first time for me to see a masjid that looks like this. I don't know what you expect to see inside. It's a place of worship, you can go inside, take a look around and pray if you wish.

The historique of the mosquée is interesting, but frankly speaking ,the inside is not as superb. If it is hot, as it usually is, you don't have to go inside. If you do, no shorts or short sleeves

This mosque built in 1728 during the Dutch colonisation is the oldest functioning mosque in the country. The architecture is Sumatran with a three-tiered flared pyramid like roof. The pagoda like stone minaret here is also a feature in other mosques in Malacca. Only Muslims are allowed entry to this mosque so we walked around the outside parameter.

I used to stop here when visiting Malacca with my family. The mosque is a famous landmark and is of the important remnants of Malacca. Architecturally quite unique in design and appearance, the mosque can be distinguished from it's tiered roof and white minaret.

Was disappointed the Mosque was still closed but walked around it from outside and did get a feel for what it represents for the local people ..glad to see it is being restored to its former beauty. Maybe next visit I will be able to enter.

It takes some time to walk here from China town. The shops alongside would be interesting if you want to know about the living of local people. In addition, the river cruise would turn back from the warehouse nearby. The temple itself is so simple but unique.
