Penyengat Island

Penyengat island is a country of aristocrats. This small island is s proof of Malay society union in the past, starting from Malaka, Johor and Riau, until finally they were separated by colonial culture intervention. In Penyengat Island, many great evidences and perseverance of Malay people in their golden era are still existed even though they are neglected. The high Taste buildings give contrast color towards the Malay society who lives around the ares. It feels strange, when they suddenly become slow, and loosing their ethos and left out from other ethnic groups. In Penyengat Island, there was a big mosque named Penyengat Island Great Mosque that was built in 1823 with the initiative of The Young Honorable, King of Abdul Rahman. This mosque length is 19.60 meter and inside of the mosque there are 4 big pillars that hold the building and give sturdy impression to it. The strange thing is, the accent of the mosque is not similar to the other mosques that exemplify the Arab accent. Instead, Penyengat Island Great Mosque gives a sense of European castle accent with its quadrangle domes that soar up conically. In each direction of the building, there are muezzin tower that proclaiming azan (the call to pray). All of the domes in the mosque have muezzins towers added, the total muezzin towers are 17 towers, and it is the same with the amount of rakaat (unit of ritual prayer) for Islamic obligatory prayers in a day.
