Sultan Abu Bakar Mosque information
The stunning whitewashed walls and blue-tiled roofing of the Sultan Abu Bakar features a mix of architectural influences, including Victorian. It was built between 1892 and 1900 and is quite rightly hailed as one of the most magnificent mosques in the area. Sadly, non-Muslims cannot enter the building itself.
