Sultan Mosque
Apr 2021
This mosque reminds me of Asma bint Alvi mosque in Muscat Oman which is also very beautiful with same orange dome but yellow theme. This one however has slightly different architecture but equally subtle green colour.

It's named after Sultan Hussein Shah who was the first sultan of Singapore. It was first built in 1824 when Sultan and his family moved in next door and settled here in the area. It was rebuilt 100 years later in 1928 in current shape and form due to original being just bricks and wood.

Currently its a national monument and very famous cultural landmark other than just a place of worship.

Beautiful building
Dec 2019
After an original mosque was built on the site in 1824 for the first Sultan of Singapore, this impressive building, with it's onion shaped domes, was erected in 1928 and now stands as a national monument. Although we didn't venture inside the beautiful architecture can be admired externally and I adored the gold detailing.

An outstanding building and an iconic landmark of Kampong Glam
Oct 2020
Sultan Mosque is the focal point of Kampong Glam. The main entrance gate is at the junction of Muscat and Bussorah Street. This present building was designed by the Irish architect Denis Santry of Swan and MacLaren. This building is most outstanding for its two large golden-yellow onion domes. Notice the brown bottles packed closely just below the domes. It was donated by the community. Four tall slender minarets with mini-balconies and octagonal shafts occupy the four corners. It was gazetted as a national monument in 1975.

Beautiful Mosque
Aug 2019
This is an iconic Mosque in Singapore. The architecture of this mosque is really beautiful from inside and outside. The mosque has been there since 20th century. I visited this mosque during Maghrib and Friday Jumma prayer. The mosque is really busy during Friday Jumma prayer. This is the only mosque in Singapore where you can hear the Adhan(calling for prayer). This is a very well maintained mosque and everyone I met were very approachable and friendly. I would definitely recommend a visit to this mosque.

The most significant and historic Mosque in Singapore
Feb 2020
Unfortunately, the day we chose to visit the Kampong Glam, the Malaysian District, the Mosque was closed for prayers. still we enjoyed its interesting architecture. While there are many mosque in Singapore. This is the most significant and most historic. While the building is almost 100 years old, the origin of this mosque goes back to the founding of Singapore and honors the Sultan of Johor who granted the land to the British in 1819. The architecture draws on a Saracenic design used by the British in India for Muslim structures, but is not necessarily consistent with Malaysian design. It has 4 minarets and two large onion domes. At the base of each is a shimmering black band made for the bottom of bottles. It is the primary attraction and most significant structure in the Kampong Glam and the very center of daily life in this district.

Amazing!
Apr 2019
We were given robes to wear at the entrance and felt truly welcomed to visit. Big, beautiful, open, and airy, with huge overhead fans and magnificent chandeliers, it provided a vast open space for prayer. Wall plaques in the rear explained the philosophy of Mohammed (the great prophet) and the Muslim religion (founded on love, acceptance, and peaceful co-existence with others).

Neo-Indo-Islamic mosque with Malay influences
Mar 2020
One of the major landmarks of Kampong Glam, this mosque has been around since the turn of the 20th century. It appears to have been built in the Neo-Indo-Islamic style with some Malay influences, evident in the onion domes and facades respectively. Unfortunately when I visited, the building was closed to visitors because of the Covid outbreak. It’s still open to worshippers though.

Beautiful and great eats across the street
Feb 2020
In order to appreciate the amalgam of cultures in Singapore, you must visit a mosque, and this one is gorgeous. Eat some Murtabak at ZamZam across the street (I couldn't do a review of them but the murtabak was dee-lish!).

Too beautiful
Oct 2019
This mosque is a treat to the eyes and a perfect picture spot. The golden dome marvels in the sunlight and cannot be missed during your Singapore trip. However I did not enter the mosque but couldn't be any more impressed even by just looking at it from the outside.

Beautiful exterior and interior
Feb 2020
This is a very impressive mosque right at the heart of the Arabic Quarter of the city - very beautiful from the outside and inside. As a muslim, I did pray in this mosque in congregation which was awesome. For non-muslim visitors, there will be notices regarding when to enter the mosque - you will be forbidden to enter while prayers are taking place. I'm unsure when the visitors can come and have a look but I suspect the best time would be probably between 9.00am and 11.30am since there are no prayers during this time but it is best to find out from the mosque committee regarding this matter. The mosque is close to Bugis MRT on the Downtown line. When you are visiting the place, please make sure you apply to the rules regarding clothing - the ladies will be given clothing to cover the body and the hair. Also be respectful when you visit any religious sites like mosques, temples and cathedrals
