This is the oldest functioning mosque in Malaysia and was, surprisingly, commissioned by the Dutch in 1728. The mosque is made up of predominantly Javanese architecture with a multi-tiered roof in place of the standard dome; at the time of construction, domes and minarets had not yet come into fashion. It's not particulary well set up for visitors but this Chinatown icon is worth admiring from outside.
