Kampung Keling Mosque




The Kampung Keling Mosque is a Sumatran-style building with a three-tiered wooden roof. The mosque was built in 1748 and the outer wall was completed in 1868. The styling of the building is highly eclectic. It is one of the few mosques with a pagoda instead of a minaret. Also, the interior has no dome, which is very unusual. The arcade around the prayer hall is a series of Corinthian columns, reflecting European influence.
