Masjid Hajjah Fatimah, Singapore
(3.7/5 based on 15+ reviews on the web)
Masjid Hajjah Fatimah is a mosque located along Beach Road in the Kampong Glam district within the Kallang Planning Area in Singapore. The mosque was completed in 1846. The mosque represented a mix of local Islamic and European architecture, having been designed by colonial architect John Turnbull Thomson. The mosque was named after a lady of the same name, who was a wealthy donor to the building.HistoryNamed after an aristocratic Malay woman, Masjid Hajjah Fatimah was built in 1845–1846. The mosque was built on the site of Hajjah Fatimah's former house at Java Road. In the late 1830s, this house was broken into twice and, on the second occasion,it was set on fire.Hajjah Fatimah, who was away when the arson attack occurred, was so relieved to have been spared any injury that she designated the land for a mosque. Since then, most of the buildings at Java Road apart from the mosque have been bulldozed to make way for modern high-rise flats.Hajjah Fatimah was an intrepid businesswoman, exceptional for her time. Born into a wealthy Malaccan family, she married a Bugis prince from Celebes who ran a trading post in Singapore. The marriage did not last long, however; he died while she was a young woman. Undaunted, she singlehandedly carried on his business, acquiring numerous vessels which she used to amass a large fortune.

  • In the corner of the Arab town just outside the Park. Early morning walks and share込nnda is just in front of the hotel where we stayed, but unfortunately the gate is closed, unfortunately. Just as the Sultan Mosque is not seen from the outside, was a nice mosque.

  • Old and comparatively small masjid but well-kept. Nice peaceful place within a busy city.
  • Exactly opposite golden mile complex next to food centre. Clean and quite even in a busy city area.
  • Nice and well-kept masjid a stone's throw away from the popular Beach Road food centre.
  • An oasis of Peace beside THE place to buy food!
  • Alhamdulillah, theres a worship (Mosque) in this busy city.
