Visit Ubudiah Royal Mosque in 2024

Commissioned by Sultan Idris Murshidul’adzam Shah, the ruler of Perak, in the early 20th century, the Ubudiah Mosque is one of Malaysia's most beautiful mosques, symbolizing pride and faith. Its construction, completed in 1917, faced several delays due to war and supply issues, yet the result was nothing short of magnificent. The mosque’s stunning architecture, with its impressive Italian marble, stained glass windows, and exquisite calligraphy, provides not only a place of worship but also a testament to the harmonious blend of traditional Malay and European architectural styles. The mosque's four minarets and large dome are covered in a distinctive layer of bright tiles and gold, making it an unforgettable sight both at a distance and up close.
