Masjid Sultan Idris Shah II

Situated in the heart of Ipoh, Masjid Sultan Idris Shah II stands as a State Mosque, a revered symbol within the city. Positioned near the Ipoh Railway Station, the Ipoh District Police Headquarters, the Sharia Court, the High Court of Ipoh, and the Ipoh Bus Station, it holds a central place in the city’s landscape.

Officially inaugurated on September 15, 1978, by Sultan Idris Iskandar Shah II (1963-1984), the 54th Sultan, the mosque’s establishment coincided with the celebration of his 54th birthday. Nestled on approximately 2.6 hectares of land in the heart of Ipoh, its construction commenced on May 16, 1966, with the foundation stone laid on October 27, 1967, by (the late) Tun Haji Abdul Razak, then the Deputy Prime Minister. The completion of the mosque’s construction was achieved on August 26, 1968.

Initially named ‘Masjid Negeri (Perak),’ it was later bestowed the name ‘Masjid Sultan Idris Shah II’ in honor of Sultan Idris Iskandar Shah II, who passed away in 1984. The visionary behind the construction was (the late) Orang Kaya-Kaya Panglima Bukit Gantang Seri Amar Diraja Abdul Wahab in 1951. At the time, he served as the Menteri Besar and recognized the inadequacy of existing mosques in Ipoh to accommodate worshippers during significant Islamic events and Friday prayers. The total cost of construction amounted to RM1,840,000.00.

Masjid Sultan Idris Shah II has become a spiritual and architectural landmark, embodying the vision of its founders. It serves as a place of worship, community gatherings, and cultural events, contributing significantly to the rich religious and historical tapestry of Ipoh.
