Malaysia: A Postcard from Kuala Kangsar

This is just a postcard entry

Masjid Ubudiah, or Ubudiah Mosque, is reputed to be among the most beautiful mosques in Malaysia. Located in the royal town of Kuala Kangsar in the state of Perak, it was built almost 100 years ago under the order of the then Sultan of Perak who wanted to give thanks after recovering from an illness.

Designed by a British who was a government architect, the architectural style of the mosque is influenced by the style that was popular in British India at the time. The same architect designed the (old) Kuala Lumpur railway station and Ipoh railway station in Perak using the same influence and style. Both railway stations are still in use to this very day and have also remained as one of the major landmarks in Kuala Lumpur and Perak respectively.
