Ipoh State Mosque: A Symbol of Ipoh
Ipoh State Mosque, or Sultan Idris Shah II Mosque by its official name, opened in 1968. Named after the then sultan, the religious landmark opposite the Railway Station has become a symbol of the city. The white-washed two-storied mosque with a modern style of Islamic architecture has 44 domes and a 38 metre- (125 feet-) tall minaret. Tiny mosaic tiles decorate this must-visit attraction in Ipoh that glistens under the sun. Inside Ipoh’s largest mosque, there’s a library, conference centre and open space that often doubles-up as a wedding venue.
