Masjid Kampung Laut, Nilam Puri   Masjid Kampung Laut, Nilam Puri

Sadly, the mosque’s foundation was weak. Built on the banks of a river, the mosque was frequently submerged in floods like the one in 1926 which was known as the ‘Bah Air Merah’ which weakened the foundations further. After being hit once again by a big flood in 1966 that swept part of the mosque, Malaysia History Association (Persatuan Sejarah Malaysia) suggested the relocation of the mosque to another safe place. In 1968, the mosque was rebuilt in the vicinity of Islamic Studies School (Sekolah Pengajian Islam) in Nilam Puri.

In 1988, the mosque was repaired again with modern fixtures and facilities such as electric supply, tap water, toilet and seating area. Pillars and walls of the mosque were also decorated with wood craft. With these renovations, the built up area became 5,254 square feet (74feet x 71 feet) which was 13 times bigger than the original mosque.
