Thanks for commenting. You're right, while mosques in Malaysia usually built with strong Middle-Eastern design incorporating the Byzantine-style domes, mosques in Melaka however were designed with the adaptation of some Chinese Pagoda influence. Some of the mosques in the Malaysia State of Kelantan & the island of Sumatra Indonesia also share similar architecture with the ones in Melaka.

Another mosque, the Kampung Hulu Mosque, was originally built in 1720s by a Chinese Muslim.

Thank you for sharing these great pics! I think it's a great thing to do (the mixing of styles), because it adds more diversity and a unique touch to a specific region.

Agreed with you, after all Melaka was once a bustling transit point for the traders from the East & West. Thanks
