Why Mubarak Mosque is special ?

Mubarak is one of the oldest mosques of the Muslim community of Cham people in the Mekong Delta province of An Giang, and it lures many tourists to explore the culture and religion as well as architecture. The Mubarek Mosque lies riverside ,the treasured heart of their community. White domed and marble tiled tranquility offers respite from the heat and bustle of the thronging markets that lie on the shores near-by. Small children learn to write up the Korans tenets in Arabic script, here in this town at the meeting point of two largely Buddhist countries, Cambodia and Vietnam. Mubarek Mosque, through whose arched windows one can stare off into the marshy fields of the Mekong, is a destination most worthy.

What to explore at Mubarak Mosque?

After some minutes on Chau Giang ferry, tourists will see the onion-shaped peak in the distance and crescent moon patterns in – a typical feature of Muslim architecture. If taking a boat cruise along the river, tourists can sense deeply the peace and fresh feeling of the sanctuary in the morning, at noon or sunset.

Mubarak Mosque is the spiritual symbol of the community. The mosque is also highlighted by a collection of ten Rapana drums which are rumored to be 500 years old. Drums are played in traditional ceremonies as well as festivals in the community. Locals say currently there are about seven people who can play the drums but they are trying to find a protégé to keep the tradition alive.

Tips for you

  • Visitors are permitted, but you should avoid entering during the calls to prayer (five times daily) unless you are a Muslim.

  • If you're going on a Mekong delta cruise from Ho Chi Minh City towards Phnom Penh you'll probably stop by here. If not, ask your tour company to do so.
    Things to do
  • The village sells local handicraft, so it's a good place to pick up souvenirs and gifts to people back home.
    Soveunir
  • And if you see a lady selling sponge cake by the side of the road, do yourself a favor and buy some. You won't regret it.
    What to buy
  • There are other small mosques in the Chau Doc area. They are accessible by boat, but you'll need a local guide to find them all.

Last thing we expected to see while in Viet Nam was a mosque. We visited this mosque after we visited a floating fishing village that lies in front of the Victoria Chau Doc hotel. Highly recommend a tour of the fishing village if you can get one. We went into one of the houses to see how they raise several types of fish (primarily catfish) UNDER their houses...they have holes in the floors of the house where they feed the fish. From there our boat took us to a Cham Muslim village (we had to walk across two rickety bridges to reach the village from the bank of the Mekong River (Hau Giang River is its name in this area). The village is very poor and it was interesting to wander through it. We took an elevated walkway (not as rickety as the bridges) over to the main street to visit this mosque...certainly not elegant but kept very neat and clean and interesting to see. You may be able to book a tour of this village as well as the floating fishing village through the Victoria Chau Doc hotel. Both things are interesting to do.
