Masjid Ridzuaniah

Ridzuaniah Mosque, long overshadowed by the immensely famous Ubudiah Mosque, is the biggest mosque in Kuala Kangsar. It was built shortly after the Ubudiah Mosque, in 1915, during the reign of Sultan Idris Murshidul’adzam Shah, the 28th Sultan of Perak (1887-1916). The land, which was endowed by the Sultan for religious purposes, is situated within a stone’s throw from the Oldest Rubber Tree in Malaysia.

The cost of construction was borne by the Sultan Idris Shah I Fund, which is managed by the Sultan Idris Religious and Charitable Trust. The mosque was officially opened by Sultan Abdul Jalil Karamatullah Shah in October 1916. It consisted of a praying area in the shape of eight squares with a dome in the centre. Since then, it has undergone a few renovations. During the reign of Sultan Iskandar Shah (1918-1938), the praying area was extended to accommodate 600 people and in 1968, during the reign of Sultan Idris Shah II (Marhum Affifullah) (1963-1984), it was extended again, to accommodate 1000 worshipers.
