From Backside postcard:
The Kapita Kliang Mosque was constructed in 1800 of Indian Islamic architectural influence. Its worshippers consist of members of the Indian Muslim community.

Being a prominent Islamic historic centre, it is part of the World Heritage Site of George Town and lies at the centre of the city's Tamil Muslim neighbourhood, the chulias. It is the first permanent Muslim institution to have been established in the area.
