Anjuman Himayathul Islam (6 May, 2008)
The Anjuman Himayathul Islam is a body for the Indian Muslims in the late 19th century George Town to provide for the welfare of their Muslim brothers. It is located in a three storey mid-20th century building along Chulia Street. It has a circular minaret from which the calls to prayer can be sounded.
The building replaces an earlier structure on the same spot, where the Indian Muslim community has once owned properties, pockets of which can still be seen as in the Line Clear Nasi Kandar, the Masjid Alimsah Waley and Benggali Mosque on Leith Street.
