MAGNIFICENT MOSQUE - Negeri Sembilan, Melaka & Johor

 
 

NEGERI SEMBILAN

 

The State Mosque of Negeri Sembilan has a distinctive architecture that sets it apart from other mosques in the country. It has nine pillars which represent the nine provinces of the state. Each pillar has a crescent on it. Strategically located at Jalan Dato? Hamzah within the beautiful Seremban Lake Gardens, this mosque is a major attraction for tourists.

 
 
 

MELAKA / MALACCA

 
Kampung Kling Mosque Kampung Hulu Mosque
 

Mosques in Melaka exhibit various design influences, a testament to its rich and colourful past as a 16th century maritime trading centre that attracted merchants from around the region. Among the mosques that showcase foreign influences are the Kampung Hulu Mosque, Kampung Kling Mosque and Tengkera Mosque. The Kampung Hulu Mosque was built in 1728. This building is fairly unusual for a mosque, inspired by the Sumatran architecture. The roof consists of three levels and its dome is made of carved sea stones. Instead of minarets, there is only one tall tower, structured like a pagoda.

 

Located in Chinatown, the Kampung Kling Mosque is one of the most distinctive landmarks in Melaka. Built in 1748, the Sumatran-style building features a watch towercum- minaret and a multi-tiered roof which is commonly found in Indian architecture. However, some believe that it was structured after the Chinese pagoda. Interestingly, the arcade around the prayer hall features a series of Corinthian columns, reflecting European influence. Just two kilometres outside of Melaka city is the famous Tengkera Mosque. Built in 1728, the mosque is built in an unusual rectangular shape. It has a three-tiered, pagoda-like structure instead of the normal dome. Intricate carvings and designs fill the interior and exterior of the mosque.

 
 
 

JOHOR

 

Sultan Abu Bakar Mosque

 

Johor, Malaysia?s southern gateway, is reputed to have one of the most beautiful mosques in Malaysia. The Sultan Abu Bakar Mosque reflects a combination of Moorish architecture and neo-classical elements that were popular during the Victorian era. Built in 1900, it consists of four wings, minarets and pinnacles. It is strategically located on top of a hill at Jalan Abu Bakar, overlooking the Straits of Tebrau. The first Jamek Mosque in Muar was completed in 1887. A committee was formed in the 1920s to consider building a new mosque. Construction began in 1925. Five years later, the Sultan Ibrahim Jamek Mosque, located along Jalan Petri was officially opened.
