An Iconic Mosque in the heart of Georgetown. Good management & also welcome to non muslim to visit. The will provide you proper clothing & ample of info's about the mosque
Being a prominent Islamic historic centre, it is part of the World Heritage Site of George Town. Strategic place with wide area. There's a mini tower in front of the mosque that you can use to see Georgetown city from the top. When I take wudhu, it's not usual get the water directly from pool 😂
