Abstract
The Peringgit Mosque, built in the 18th century during the Dutch colonial era, is one of the oldest mosques in Malacca. It is preserved as a historical legacy under the supervision of the Perbadanan Muzium Negeri Malacca (PERZIM). This article analyses the design of the pulpit that has its own advantages compared to other mosque pulpits in Malacca. In addition, this study also describes the motif and ornamentation found in the design of the pulpit. The authors use qualitative methods to focus on the analysis of documents as well as observational techniques to produce an effective study. This research found that the motifs can be categorized into "flora and fauna" and "geometry", and its application has its own purpose in the context of relationships with human, relationship with nature and relationship with God.
