iSee Ban Oou Masjid

A mosque over 100 years old with origins from Java

First registered mosque in Bangkok

This unsuspecting mosque sits quietly in a corner of a back street, away from the hustle and bustle of main road Charoenkrung. It dutifully serves the Muslim community around them day in, day out. Little do people know that this small mosque was founded in the 1910s and holds the distinction of being the first registered mosque of Bangkok in 1948.

Landlord for community members

The mosque serves many purposes to bring community members together. Prayer service, education, community meetings, burial ceremonies, and more make it a center of many people’s lives. But this mosque also owns some land around it. It rents out houses to people at an affordable rate when prices are rising in the area every year.
