The Cholon Mosque is found in the Chinatown – Cholon – of Ho Chi Minh City, and is an austere and clean building compared to the many colorfully decorated and lit Chinese and Vietnamese Buddhist pagodas around. The mosque was built by Tamil Muslims in 1935 but is not used extensively by the Malaysian and Vietnamese Muslim community.
In the courtyard, you can find a pool for the ritual ablutions. There is also a tiled niche in the wall, mihrab, indicating the direction of prayer, towards Mecca.
