9. Acheen Street Mosque

Locally called ‘Masjid Melayu Lebuh Acheh’ or ‘Malay Mosque’, the parishioners follow the Shafie school and sermons are conducted in Malay. The mosque and trust lands were endowed in 1808 by Tengku Syed Hussain Al-Idid, who became the Sultan of Aceh. Sheikh Omar Basheer, the famous 19th century Naqshabandi Sufi leader, lived at No. 69 Lebuh Aceh in the mosque compound.
