It was then named Batu Uban (grey hair rock), after a boulder somewhere in the sea between the mosque and Pulau Jerejak,[1] which resembled a man with grey hair.

The current mosque still maintains some of the surau's original structure, such as its four square-shaped tiang seri (central pillars), well, and the ablution area.


Masjid Jamek Batu Uban now.
