State Mosque of Perak

Apart from the Ipoh Railway Station, Town Hall & High Court, Perak State Mosque, Sultan Idris Shah II Mosque, is another significant building in Old Town. It covers an area of 2.6 hectares and believed to be the biggest mosque in the city. The mosque was completed in August 1968 and officially declared open by the late Sultan Idris Shah II on 15 November 1968. The completion of this mosque at that time simply marks the glorious era of Perak where mosque in great scale was not common throughout the nation.
