Masjid Sultan, Singapore

4.4
View the golden domes and prayer hall of one of the country's most prominent religious buildings, the 19th-century Masjid Sultan. Built in 1824 for Sultan Hussain, this mosque remains a landmark of the historic Kampong District. The structure was rebuilt in 1934 by Singapore's oldest architectural form, Swan and Maclaren. The most remarkable part of the current structure, which was named a national monument in 1975, is the glass dome created from glass bottle ends donated by Muslims so that even the most poor community members could have the chance to contribute to the mosque.

  • The mosque in any case is in Singapore, is conspicuous in the Malaysian part. You power with its golden roofs beautiful what forth. A visit is free, it can happen only that you must put on some clothes. These are available but free. The mosque from the inside is also pretty impressive. Bottom line: worth a stop!

  • I stayed in a hostel very close to this mosque, so I had the chance to pray here twice (once at night, and another one in the evening). Very serene, nice architecture. The toilet and ablution area are very clean and visitor-friendly. It is open for visitors of different faiths as well. Just in front of the mosque (facing Bussorah street) you can read more about this mosque (like the history of how it was built etc)
  • I was just walking to Bugis and was very glad to stumble on to this treasure. I didn't go in. I didn't wanna shoulder my way through the other tourists that just came out of their big buses with their guides. So yeah, this place gets a bit busy. But even from outside, it was a splendid view, located on a pretty neat neighborhood.
  • Definitely worth a visit when in Singapore. This is one of the most iconic mosque in Singapore, its open to every one and there are a number of displays inside the mosque explaining about the religion Islam for any one who is interested in learning. Photos are allowed. A must see for all when in the area!
  • I was astonished by the beautiful mosque and streets. It's nice to look and stroll around, I hoped some restaurants were more authentic.
  • Very serene. A place of peace and worship. Visiting hours are before or after the prayer hours.
