Official description

Mr. Wan Hussein Az-Sanawi, who migrated from Ban Sano Yanya in Pattani province, built the mosque in 1624. The mosque was originally roofed with palm leaves and later with fired clay tiles. The mosque is different than others as it is two buildings connected to each other. It is built entirely of timber, with pieces interlocking each other without nails. The style is traditional Thai with contemporary Chinese and Malay. The most outstanding feature is that above the roof is a base that supports a gable. The Azan tower has a Chinese style and is situated on the rear part of the roof. The tower has wooden walls with windows. The air holes are carved with leaf, flower and Chinese designs.
