The original mosque at this site is no longer present. The second mosque built at the site is a wooden building on stilts which is located on the south side of the new structure. Currently, the site contains a modern prayer room (meunasah). The only part of the original mosque that still survives is the minaret used to call for prayers. It is approximately 300 years old. There have not been any significant changes to the structure, other than the roof. The original roof was made of palm fiber. It was first replaced with thatched leaf, and now uses modern roofing material. The minaret is now located on the west side of the new building’s terrace. Before it was relocated, the community performed a ceremony (khauri) to bless the moving of the minaret.
