Popularly known as Kapitan Keling, Cauder Mohuddeen (alias Kaider Madeen) is the founder of the Kapitan Keling mosque at Jalan Masjid Kapitan Keling (formerly known as Pitt Street).

The early Indian settlers of Penang were called Chulias and they settled in an area between Pitt Street and Chulia Street. At that time, one Cauder Mohuddeen was the headman of the Indian Muslims and he was the designated Kapitan of the Chulias. [1]

Upon his death in 1834, he was laid to rest at Kampung Kolam, George Town. The tomb is officially known as Makam Ma'Amah, or Ma'Amah Mausoleum, in honour of Aminah, Cauder Mydin Merican's third wife, who was also known as Ma'Amah. [2]
