About Kapitan Keling Mosque

The Kapitan Keling Mosque, the oldest mosque in George Town, was established with a large site endowed by the East India Company in 1801. The original brick mosque was built by Kader Mydin Merican, the Kapitan Keling Headmen of the South Indian Community. The present mosque complex, with its towering minaret and elegant domes, is the result of several rounds of expansion in the early 20th century.
