Jamae Mosque, Singapore

3.6
Masjid Jamae or Jamae Mosque HistoryJamae Mosque was established by the Chulias, who were Tamil Muslims from the Coromandel Coast of South India. They came to Singapore mostly as traders and money changers and set up three mosques within a short time, with Jamae Mosque being the first. The other two are Al-Abrar Mosque and Nagore Durgha, both of which are on Telok Ayer Street. A mosque was initially set up on South Bridge Road around 1826 under the leadership of Ansar Saib, and the current Jamae Mosque was then constructed on the site between 1830 and 1835.In 1881, after the early benefactors had died, a lease was granted to five trustees of the mosque, and in 1894, the Jamae Mosque and Nagore Durgha were placed under a new panel of court-appointed trustees. In 1917, the Mohammedan and Hindu Endowments Board took over the management of the mosque until 1968, when it handed the reins over to Majlis Ugama Islam Singapura (MUIS).Despite two proposals to rebuild it, the present structure has remained more or less unchanged since it was completed in 1835. Repair work was undertaken in 1996. Jamae Mosque is skewed towards Mecca although the mosque's compound is aligned with the street grid.Jamae Mosque's value as a historical site was recognised when it was gazetted as a national monument on 19 November 1974.

  • Masjid Jamaj district of Chinatown. The building has remained unchanged since postorjki in the year 1835. Parishioners come in through the gates of the mosque, framed by two octagonal minarets topped by onion domes and four-storey Palace façade. Each minaret has seven levels. The mosque's architectural style is eclectic.

  • It is a small mosque in mint green and Sri Mariamman Temple located across the shops like a tenement house 4. Mosque was built as a believe Islam of immigrants from South India settled in this area and is one of the oldest mosque in Singapore. Put in free of charge if barefoot, free tour and shooting those who intrude onto the carpet you wish non-Muslims can do that. It is one of 5 ninth designated National Monument historic. I do not have said did not tour because I didn't know whether or not is not limited to here, well put, not on special occasions but not as long as the Jewish synagogue outside churches, mosques, and temples. You can't determine whether or not believers here is seen from him at all, don't you think?

  • Big and beautiful masjid. Various lectures and courses are also done over here. Ladies prayer hall is also here.
  • The air in prayer room is cool, such a temptetion to take little nap after long shopping day 😁 Fyi, they provide women prayer cloth.
  • Good mosque with unique architecture. Clean lavatory & wudhu place, calming praying room atmosphere 🤓👍. Will definitely stop by again if I have the chance to go to Chinatown.
  • They have a bit of information about the religion in the foyer to try and dispel some of the miss understanding that people have. Take your shoes off to enter.
  • It is kind of old, but it is also a tourist place. Very good place to understand about muslim
