JAME MOSQUE / Mesjid Jame

Jame Mosque which is located in the Waihaong district of the city, was built in 1860 in a very simple fashion with wooden pillars, thatched roof and walls made of wooden panels. In 1898 the mosque was destroyed by a very strong wind. It was rebuilt but in 1933 it was destroyed by floods caused by the Wai Batu Gajah river overflowing. The mosque was rebuilt in 1940 without any change to its original design.

Tahun 1898 bangunan mesjid ini hancur total karena angin rebut. Kemudian didirikan kembali bangunan baru namun pada tahun 1933 hancur dilanda banjir besar akibat meluapnya kali Wai Batu Gajah yang mengalir disampingnya. Bangunan yang sekarang rampung dibangun pada tahun 1940 tanpa merubah bentuk aslinya
