Kampung Laut Mosque is said to be the oldest mosque in the region, believed to have been around for more than 250 years. Said to be built in the 1730s, it was born out of a vow made by a group of missionaries who had survived a life-threatening ordeal at sea on one of their journeys. They decided to build the mosque at the place where they had safely landed, which was Kampung Laut. The whole structure had since been moved to Nilam Puri when a great flood destroyed part of the mosque in 1966.
The mosque’s strikingly classic architecture with its triple-tiered roof is a combination of traditional local style with Javanese influence. Only highly-skilled craftsmen and builders were commissioned in the building of this mosque, with every piece of locally-sourced building material handcrafted to perfection. Cengal hardwood was mainly used in its construction, allowing the mosque to retain a timeless aesthetic quality. Masjid Kampung Laut remains an active religious centre catering to the residents of Nilam Puri and one of the country’s most important living museums.
