Pos Malaysia issued a set of stamps commemorating the 750th anniversary of Malacca, one of the stamps featured a famous mosque namely Kampung Hulu Mosque. Some had realised  maximum cards of the Mosque with a common postcard readily available in the streets of Malacca. The said postcard features a mosque of the similar architecture of the same color scheme, the name of the mosque on the postcard is Kg. Kling Mosque.

There exists a distinct difference between the 2 mosques and it can be easily be spotted by the Pagoda like minaret by the sides of the respective mosque.

Kg. Ulu Mosque

The mosque is situated north of Jalan Tukang Emas, also known as "Harmony Street" because of its proximity to the Sri Payyatha Viyanagar Moorthi Temple and Cheng Hoon Teng Temple.
