Noted for its tower, this mosque just off end of Cannon Road in Geogetown is great to use as backdrop of the boy reaching up mural

The minaret became a direction point on our walks around the old town. It’s a building that looks great from the outside, we didn’t go in.

We pass by the exterior only after our last stop on the street art in Georgetown. Nice n well maintained building.

The design is different from a typical mosque. Almost like a village inside - homes & mosque in same compound

This was classified as a Malaysian Mosque and sits on Acheh Street and it was interesting but not that special

I had the kids in tow on this trip so didn't actually go inside the mosque. But the outside remains quite attractive, with the minaret in the shape of a lighthouse. Makes for a nice picture as you look down Cannon street.

A short visit to this mosque is interesting and educational. I did not go inside but around the perimeter
