Located within the historical town of Jugra, Masjid Diraja Sultan Alaeddin is one of Selangor’s oldest mosques.
Jalan Istana Kampung Bandar,
Also known as Masjid Alauddin or Masjid Bandar, the mosque was built in the early 1900s about 200 meters from Istana Bandar (Bandar Palace), the residence of the fifth Sultan of Selangor, Sultan Sir Alaeddin Sulaiman Shah.
It is believed that the design of this yellow mosque originated from the Sultanate of Deli in Medan, Sumatera.
A fine example of classic Moorish and Mughal architecture, the mosque shares several similarities with another heritage landmark, the Sultan Abdul Samad Building in Kuala Lumpur, particularly in its domes and arches.
Masjid Diraja Sultan Alaeddin’s interior is decorated with Qur’anic inscriptions and intricate wood carvings. Renowned journalist George L. Peet, who visited the mosque in its prime, revealed that its pulpit was often used by the Sultan himself to deliver sermons.
