Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

We did not tour the interior, only admired the mosque architecture from outside as we explored Little India on foot.

Very simple colors of white and green, really stood out in the neighborhood. You can see the prominent onion-shaped domes with a crescent moon/star at the top. Took some nice photographs, worth the stop for us.

It was not open to tourists and you can not see too much of it from the street which was disappointing.

Between tripadvisor and my travel book, I had really wanted to see this mosque. The pictures are amazing. Unfortunately, when my wife and I arrived it was under construction being repaired. Hopefully it will be back open soon.

Wednesday evening 23rd of October we were in Little India and we briefly visited this holy place.

This Mosque is located on Dunlop Street, which is a turn off Serangoon Road.

The exterior of the Mosque was rather eye catching with its ornate front with the pillars and large sundial over the main entrance.

The sundial has 25 rays emanating from the centre, each ray has a name of a prophet inscribed on it.

There are a number of small turret like structures and the building is covered with stars.

Building of the Mosque was completed in 1910. In 1979 it was designated as a National monument of Singapore.

We stopped here fleeting but long enough to be impressed by this beautiful building.

The mosque is not very big, but nicely decorated. Staff is very friendly, even if you have to cover up yourself when not dressed appropriately.

Masjid Abdul Gafoor is place of worship for Muslims. They welcome visitors of all other religion. The building is very colorful and attractive. It is a National Monument and is included in Singapore Heritage trail.

This mosque has the most amazing facade! The architecture is called Moorish - Victorian and it's buttery yellow and dark sap green in colour. There are many minarets or minaret shaped towers and the whole building is covered in stars, crescent moons and a huge ornate sundial with 25 rays and the name of the 25 prophets written on each one. It's absolutely jaw-dropping in its unique decorative style. Don't miss it!
