Panglima Kinta Mosque

At one end of Hume Street (Jalan Mesjid) that close to the Kinta River bank, stood an old mosque, Panglima Kinta Mosque. This was owned by a local general during the early age of township establishment. The mosque is not easily found from main streets in New Town because it is located at a quite isolated end of Hume Street. This historical mosque is well preserved & displaying typical 19th century local Islamic architecture. Due to the isolated location, the surrounding does not changed much and I feel like walking in the past. I will, for sure, capture more images at Hume Street to share in the future.


  1. The mosque is a beautiful building.
