Time Out says

Founded in 1801, the Acheen Street Mosque is one of the oldest mosques in Penang and the land for the mosque was donated by Syed Sheriff Tengku Syed Hussain Al-Aidid (an Aceh-Arabian merchant of Achenese royalty). It has an Achehnese roof and an Arab-style white minaret that cuts a striking sight against the sky. When visiting, make sure you take a walk around the surrounding area – it’s where the first Arab settlers lived on the island.
