Penang Mosques & Muslim Sights lists the mosques, suraus, mausoleums and other sights related to the Malays and Islam in Penang. On this page are mosques ranging from the biggest to small suraus in the kampung.
Over the years, many of the village have been renovated and expanded. Two of the earliest mosques in Penang are the Acheen Street Mosque, which is of Sumatran origin, and the Kapitan Keling Mosque, which was founded by Indian Muslims. These are the two main mosques in George Town, and had been around since the 19th century. Other very old mosques in Penang include the one in Dato Keramat, the mosque in Batu Uban, Gelugor, Sungai Dua and Bayan Lepas. The majority of these mosques were built in the early 20th century.
The biggest mosque in Penang is presently the state mosque, Masjid Negeri, at the junction of Ayer Itam Road and Green Lane. It was completed in the mid 1970s with its designed by Brazilian and Filipino architects.
