Kampung Hulu Mosque (Malay: Masjid Kampung Hulu) is a mosque in Malacca, Malaysia. It is the oldest mosque in Malacca.[1]

The mosque is situated north of Jalan Tukang Emas, also known as "Harmony Street" because of its proximity to the Sri Poyatha Moorthi Temple and Cheng Hoon Teng Temple.

History[edit]

The mosque was originally built around the year 1720-1728. It underwent renovation in 1892.

Architecture[edit]

The architectural design of the mosque is a cross between Sumatran, Chinese, Hindu, and the Melaka Malay. The minaret, ablution pool and entrance arch were built at the same time with the main building. The minaret resembles a pagoda.
