About Postcard (CR#asiaexplorers)

The Ubudiah Mosque is reputed to be one of the most beautiful mosques in Malaysia. It is located at Bukit Chandan, Kuala Kangsar. I have visited it several times, and am pleased to explore it on a nice clear day, to get these shots for AsiaExplorers. The word “ubudiah”means “to yield oneself to the will of Allah”. Appropriately, it was the name chosen by the then 28th Sultan of Perak, Sultan Idris Murshidul Adzam Shah I when His Royal Highness decided to build the mosque in 1911. He was convalescing in Port Dickson, and there, he made a vow to build a magnificent mosque as thanksgiving for recovery from the ailment that plagued him.
