Penang’s first Indian Muslim settlers (East India Company troops) built Masjid Kapitan Keling in 1801 at the junction of Lebuh Buckingham and Lebuh Pitt. The mosque’s domes are yellow, in a typically Indian-influenced Islamic style, and it has a single minaret. It looks sublime at sunset. Mosque officials can grant permission to enter.
