Batu Uban Jamek Mosque in Pulau Pinang - Malaysia
Masjid Jamek Batu Uban, the oldest masjid in Penang and second oldest after Masjid Kampung Laut in Kelantan. Masjid Kampung Laut was shifted from Tumpat to Nilam Puri to avoid land erosion and losing the masjid altogether. Masjid Batu Uban is at its original site, by the sea previously but now after land reclamation, is quite far from the sea. Two highways separate Masjid Jamek Batu Uban from the seashore.
The original masjid has 4 huge tall cengal cylindrical pillars. The interior is painted light and dark green, just like Masjid Sultan in Singapore. There are many Quran stuck in the window grills. The clock hands turn anticlockwise just as we perform tawaf. The numerals of the clock are arranged anticlockwise. The original masjid has 5-foot skirting all round except in front or Qiblat side.;
