03 Mar Kapitan Keling Mosque
Standing as a regal landmark, and one of the country’s most beautiful and historically rich mosques, the KapitanKeling mosque was founded by well-respected headman of the Indian Muslim community, CaudeerMohudeen (more popularly known as Captain Kling). The mosque, as it stands today was started in 1916, and was constructed based on the designs of Henry Alfred Neubronner, a German architect. The cream-colouredKapitanKeling mosque with its Mughal-inspired minaret tower and copper-clad main dome can only be described as truly magnificent, especially at dusk, with the backdrop of an orange sky. The mosque is open to visitors 1p.m. – 5p.m. on Saturdays to Thursdays and 3p.m. – 5p.m. on Fridays. Admission is free, but visitors are required to wear robes (provided at the mosque).
