Masjid Sultan Ibrahim, Muar, Johor

The Masjid Sultan Ibrahim is one of the most beautiful building in Muar. This historical mosque was built in 1927 and officially opened on 1930 by the then Tengku Mahkota of Johor (Crown Prince) - Tengku Ismail.

 

Built at a time when Malaya was under the British rule, it is not suprising then that this mosque has the unique distinction of having an architectural design very much influenced by the British. It's eye-catching four-storey minaret is located at the back of the mosque. The roof of the mosque's main building still has its original clay tiles but they are blocked from sight by a high brick wall.

 

This mosque has become the main mosque for the town of Muar for decades and one of the town's most recogniseable landmark.
