JALAN2: POSTCARD FROM MELAKA: MASJID KAMPUNG KLING

Postcard

Picture that I capture

Masjid Kampung Kling Kampung Kling Mosque is situated at Jalan Tukang Emas (near Jonker Street), also known as 'Harmony Street' because of its proximity to the Sri Poyatha Moorthi Temple and Cheng Hoon Teng Temple.

The original structure built by Indian Muslim traders in 1748 was a wooden building and in 1872, it was rebuilt in brick. The architectural design of the mosque is a cross between Sumatran, Chinese, Hindu, and the Melaka Malay.
