Located about five kilometres northward from Banting, Kampong Sungai Manggi boasts of a unique mosque displaying Old World charm. The Masjid Ar-Rahman defines logical explanation as to the purpose of its structure. Reaching skyward are three pillars ending with prongs resembling music tuning forks. The minaret is actually a tower with a balcony topped with a cupola sadly needing a fresh coat of paint. Nevertheless, the mosque is an interesting sight.
