Abstract

This paper reviews the conservation activities, particularly on traditional old mosque in Malaysia. It comprise the definition, concept and importance of conservation in general, the present of conservation activities on historic buildings and mosque in Malaysia, and the approaches used for conserving to preserve Muslim's house of worship. The finding of this paper highlights the four key conservation principles namely minimal intervention, conducting scientific research and laboratories testing, documentation of conservation work and applying effective methods and techniques for conservation. Meanwhile for conservation program, the seven approaches are preservation, reproduction, restoration, maintenance, redevelopment, rehabilitation and consolidation. Several approaches are normally adopted for one building conservation project. What most important is the justification in adopting the approaches so that it comply to one of the key conservation principle, namely minimal intervention.
