Photograph of an external view of the Kapitan Keling Mosque in Penang, Malaysia. A group of men stand outside the mosque. There is a covered walkway leading to the ablution area.
 
The mosque was constructed in the 1800s. The mosque's current appearance owes to a renovation in 1930. This is the earliest known photograph of Kapitan Keling Mosque.
