About Jami Ul Alfar Mosque
Standing vibrantly against the dirty and crowded 2nd Cross Street of Pettah is the Jami-Ul-Alfar Mosque. The building is layered with red and white coloured bricks that resembles a neatly aligned cake! The building which was started in 1908 was completed only a year later. The architect who was responsible for the creation of this colourful edifice is known as H.L. Saibo Lebbe . It's said that this building is similar to another mosque found in Kuala Lumpur named the Masjid Jamek.
Once you enter the courtyard there is an ablutions water tank that is lined with light blue tiles which vividly contrasts against the building's red and white stripped interior.
The mosque is a popular tourist spot however be mindful that it's a religious haven for those who want to stay away from the hustle and bustle of the streets outside.
Visiting times: Non-Muslims are not allowed in during prayer times and Fridays.
Dress code: Dress modestly to be allowed into the mosque premises.
