Timothy Tye

Masjid Muhammadiah (GPS: 4.64954, 101.10728) is a mosque in Taman Tasek Jaya, in Ipoh, Perak. The mosque is located at Jalan Musim Bunga off Jalan Sultan Azlan Shah. It is popularly known as Masjid Cina Ipoh or Ipoh's Chinese Mosque, due to its architecture, which resembles a Chinese temple or palace. The mosque has red columns and green roof ridges over orange tiles. The minaret is three storeys tall. Unlike mosques of traditional design, it does not have a dome. However, this being a mosque, there are some modification to the design of a Chinese temple. For example, in place of dragons, the mosque spots the crescent moon, and instead of the lotus flower, the hibiscus motif is employed.

Masjid Muhammadiah was planned in around 2008. Construction began on 24 November 2011, and the mosque was completed in July 2013, at a cost of RM4 million. It was used for the first time in August of that year. Sultan Nazrin Muizzuddin Shah officiated in its opening on 8 July, 2014. The Sultan, who was the Raja Muda of Perak during the construction, had supported the construction of the mosque

In the beginning, the community of the local kariah or Muslim parish expressed concern over the idea of building the mosque in Chinese architecture. However, a couple of years after it was completed, the mosque has become a local landmark and pride of the community. As a result many non Muslims have also visited the mosque and to enjoy its atmosphere.
