“Great views”
Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

Visited as part of a day trip. The views and architecture made it a worthwhile stop. Interesting history to the place - would have been nice to go inside but respect the beliefs.

“Hill-top, beautiful scenery”
Reviewed 7 July 2014

The mosque is one of the most arresting architectural sights in JB City. It is regarded as one of the most beautiful mosques in Malaysia and is listed as a protected heritage monument by the Department of Museums and Antiquities.
Because it sits on top of a hill, overlooking the Straits of Johor, the panorama from the place is breathtaking.

Was beautiful but wasn't allowed to go inside! Which was disappointing, not sure why. But I wish I had known that before got there.

“BEAUTIFUL ARCHITECTURE”
Reviewed 25 June 2014

Facade of colonial and Arabic designs, beautiful white marble tiles and a manifestations of majestic and grand building.

However, the ablutions and toilets area is inaccessible by the old and helpless, way to low and high for the steps are too many to climb. Management should consider a more feasible ways around.
