Malacca had many important mosques. Each mosque has its own history, architecture, lineage of imams and related events. The lives of the Malays who were Muslims were connected to the mosques nearby. One of these early mosques is Masjid Kampung Hulu which was built in 1728 during the Dutch era in Malacca. It is sited far away from Banda Hilir, the strategic city centre.
