Al Hana Mosque Langkawi

The mosque is also known as Masjid Al Hana and is located in Kuah Town. If you are driving towards Lagenda Park, this striking mosque will be to your left just before the park. Fringed by coconut trees along its boundary walls, this white colored mosque has a huge golden color dome with a shape of an onion and surrounded by several other smaller ones. 
This is the largest mosque in Langkawi and most popular to the locals here. It was established in 1959 and inaugurated by the first and late Prime Minister of Malaysia, Tunku Abdul Rahman. Since then, hundreds of Muslims come here everyday offering their prayers. It particularly gets full on Fridays.

The architecture has a mix of Malaysian style and that of Uzbekisthan. Many motifs and carvings have been adapted from typical Uzbekisthan mosques. The main hall or the prayer room is large and looks awesome. The walls here have verses from the Koran etched on its walls. 
There is an wooden pulpit in the main prayer room which is carved beautifully. This is where the prayer leader or the imam stands and delivers the summons. One needs to maintain complete silence in the prayer room. Women are required to wear borkhas (black gowns covering head, body and from ankle up to the knee).
