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.

This is one of Singapore's oldest mosques, dating to 1827 to serve Chulia migrants. The name board is titled 'Masjid Jamae (Chulia)' in recognition of the Tamil Muslims from Southern India who built three mosques in the area. We could not visit as the building is undergoing renovations. It has a short street front; the entrance gate flanked by minarets and retains its original form.

This historical mosque is located near the Chinatown MRT station. The ambience is not crowded, disgusting and noisy.

This is Muslim Mosque in Chinatown area. While we were not able to go inside, we enjoyed the exterior. What is so interesting is this is just down the street from a Hindu Temple and the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple. Three religions next to each other.

This mosque is very close to the Chinatown area on the main street of South Bridge Road. Were it not for the two pagoda style towers at the front of the building, it would be a rather innocuous looking building. There’s not much to see inside because visitors are limited to walking around the corridor which is just full of information about Islam and proselytisation. So unless you’ve literally never encountered Islam, then stick to admiring the building from the outside only.

Wednesday 23rd October and we were sightseeing and exploring in Chinatown and we visited the Holy Place.

At the front of the Mosque, there are 2 impressive tall turrets.The interior is a simple design and rather plain.

At the time of our visit there were some people praying in the Mosque, we did not want to intrude or disturb them, so we had a quick look around and left.

For those visitors who not dressed appropriately to enter the Mosque, there is clothing available to borrow. Also visitors are asked to remove their shoes.

The mosque was established in 1825 and the building compelted in 1835 and has apparently remained essentially unchanged (with some repair work) since then.It was built by Tamil Muslims from the south coast of India who came to Singapore as traders and money changers. They built two other mosques, both in Telok Ayer not that far away.The mosque is apparently skewed towards Mecca although the road and block are strictly in the grid ; one street nearby is called Mosque Street apparently was named after the mosque which makes some sense. "Where is the Mosque? "Down Mosque street" might be the answer. interesting architecture and worth a look. It was not open when visited.

Jamae Mosque offers a friendly facade to the visitors. It was a quiet time when we visited the Mosque, as part of our Chinatown walk. We had a restful sit- down here. Don't skip this modest landmark when visiting the neighbourhood. Avoid the Friday. It will be very busy then.

A small place for mainly Muslims to worship and offer prayers. They welcome visitors of all other religion also. Very simple, neat and clean place. On South Bridge Road, apat from this mosque visitors can also go to Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Temple of Hindu Goddess Sri Mariannam.

I was wandering around Chinatown around 10pm one night and discovered that this small mosque was still open and that there were several people there heeding the call to prayer. There was no one at the front door so I just quietly walked around enjoying another house of worship that I would normally never go see. You should stop in for a bit, just remember to take off your shoes.

Another example of Islamic Indian architecture in Singapore, this time in the heart of Chinatown, right beside Hindu, Chinese and Buddhist temples, as well as a church! This green mosque standing tall with its 2 minarets at the entrance is also a national monument of Singapore though it is so simple and modest in shape. It is not much but it's worth a quick visit. Again, it's a mosque so modest dresses and head covering is essential.
