About Travel to Kuala Kangsar


Kuala Kangsar is a small town, with around 40,000 inhabitants, with an interesting history and lots of great buildings. The notable architecture and rich history is a consequence of this being the town where the Sultans of Perak traditionally reside. The town is popular with day trippers but not so many people come to stay overnight. We recommend that if you do visit that you stay in either Ipoh or George Town overnight as both cities have better amenities, particularly for foreign visitors.

There are quite a few things to see in Kuala Kangsar, the most famous of which is the Ubudiah Mosque which is often described as being the most beautiful of all the mosques in Malaysia. The Ubudiah Mosque was designed by the accomplished British Architect A B Hubback who also designed Ipoh Railway Station and the Jamek Mosque in Kuala Lumpur. Like these two earlier projects, the Ubudiah Mosque has been designed in Indo-Saracenic style combining elements of Mughal architecture with Moorish architecture. The mosque features a large golden central dome with smaller domes on the four minarets. Kuala Kangsar also has three royal palaces, one of which is the official residence of the Sultan and the other two open to visitors as museums. The oldest of the three royal palaces, the Istana Kenangan, is an attractive wooden building constructed entirely without nails. Kualar Kangsar also has the first rubber tree ever planted in Malaysia located in the town centre. This seemly insignificant tree was the starting point for rubber production in the country, with Malaysia still retaining its position as the world’s number one rubber producer.
