Masjid Kapitan Keling

Updated: 3 Sep 2014

Built in the 19th century by Penang’s first Indian Muslim settlers, this mosque is one of Penang’s top historic sites. Bathed in cream and topped with large Mughal-style domes, crescents and stars, the Kapitan Keling Mosque features a madrasah for religious classes and a towering minaret from which the sound of the azan or call to prayer can be heard.
