Masjid Kapitan Keling

Time Out says

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.
