Acheen Street Mosque
- Lebuh Acheh
Lonely Planet review for Acheen Street Mosque
If you’re entranced by the call to prayer wafting over the short walk from Khoo Kongsi, the Malay Acheen Street Mosque is unusual for its Egyptian-style minaret (most Malay mosques have Moorish minarets). Built in 1808 by a wealthy Arab trader, the mosque was the focal point for the Malay and Arab traders in this quarter – the oldest Malay kampung (village) in Georgetown. Only Muslims can enter the mosque.
