Masjid Ubudiah is one of the most magnificent mosques in Malaysia. I am sure any postcard collector of the state of Perak would have at least one featuring this majestic mosque in his or her collection.
Standing proudly with its golden dome and minarets on Bukit Chandan in the royal town of Kuala Kangsar, Perak, this mosque was designed by Briton Arthur Benison Hubback, the same architect for the Ipoh and Kuala Lumpur railway stations.
The Ubudiah Mosque, built in 1917 at a cost of RM200,000, was on the commission of the reigning 28th Sultan of Perak, Sultan Idris Murshidul’adzam Shah, as an act of thanksgiving for recovery from an illness.
