Wikipedia Says


The mosque was built in 1890 on a piece of land leased by the British Hong Kong government. The treaty for the land was granted on 23 December 1850. Initially, the mosque was named Mohammedan Mosque. Extension of the building took place in 1915 which made the mosque into a larger building. After World War II, the mosque was renamed Jamia Mosque. It is also known as Lascar Temple.


The mosque has a rectangular shape with an arched main entrance and Arabic-style arched windows on all sides.


The building has been classified as a Grade I building by the Government of Hong Kong in May 2010 which are described as “outstanding merits of which every effort should be made to preserve if possible.”

Future expansions

There has been a plan to construct an Islamic Cultural Center by its side in the future.
