Nestled in Kuala Kangsar, the Ubudiah Mosque is regarded as one of the most beautiful mosques in Malaysia. Also referred to as Masjid Ubudiah, it literally means the mosque of self-surrender to Allah. Built in Mogul-Gothic style of architecture, this spectacular mosque is adorned with a ginormous central dome, four minarets, small gold domes and white Italian marble.
The main prayer hall of the Ubudiah Mosque is rather small, however; its unique octagonal shape is to look out for. It is adorned with red Italian marble. An exquisite Persian carpet and an intricately decorated chandelier further accentuate the beauty of the mosque. While the structure rises to a height of about 126 ft, the domes breathe at a height of about 60 ft. The mosque was commissioned by the 28th Sultan of Perak, Idris Shah. While the construction began in 1913, it was completed in 1917.
