George Town Street View: Jalan Masjid (Masjid Road)

Jalan Masjid

Jalan Masjid (or Jalan Mesjid, Masjid Road) is a small road off Chulia Street which can be found just right beside the Sky Hotel building in George Town. The word ‘masjid’ refers to a mosque, and the road was named after one of the small and old Indian Muslim mosques in the Chulia Street area. There is also a small Indian-Muslim tomb called Makam Maulana Miskin Waliallah located along this road (as pictured below).
