Jamek Paka Mosque is a landmark in the town of Paka, located 100 kilometres south of the state capital, Kuala Terengganu. The town has experienced an increase in population due to the oil and gas industry investments attracting people from all over the country to come to Paka to work in its refinery plants and petrochemicals production. As such, this mosque is perfectly built to accommodate the religious needs of the growing residents of Paka due to its sheer size that could accommodate more congregants.
The mosque is also positioned just nearby the main road of Jalan Kemaman-Dungun, therefore it is easily accessible upon coming to Paka, especially with its distinctive features in comparison to the buildings nearby. The mosque is commonly used by the residents of Muslim faith for various religious activities focusing on the community such as sermons, the mass obligatory of five-time day prayers, Quran and hadith studies and many more.
