Beijing Mosque in Kelantan

A landmark you will not be miss when you visit Kota Bharu, Kelantan (east coast state) is this Chinese-style mosque.

In Rantau Panjang, Kelantan, this RM8.8mil Sultan Ismail Petra Silver Jubilee Mosque, the first Chinese-style mosque in the country, is set to open its doors this Ramadan, the fasting month.

The mosque, known locally as the Beijing Mosque, has a unique design that combines Chinese and Islamic architecture similar to the more than 1,000-year-old Niujie mosque in Beijing.

Indian and Uzbek features are also incorporated in the interiors. The main complex consists of a two-storey building.

The first and mezzanine floors have amenities including a multipurpose hall, library, kindergarten and a bazaar while the second floor houses the main prayer hall and VIP rooms.
