A very nice Mosque in a beautiful setting. Nice place to chill early in the morning before 9am, or to see the sunset later on. The Mosque opens at 10am, but you may walk around the outside at any time.

Went here to perform my prayer and afterwards took my time here to enjoy the view and take some pictures. This place offers a mesmerizing view during sunset (provided the day is not raining or too cloudy).

A beautiful mosque, it was only built in 2006, so it's not really historical, especially in comparison to many of the other sites in Melaka. Still, it's worth a visit as a non-Muslim for its sheer aesthetic quality. If you are staying in the historical...More
