Interesting Indian Muslem Heritage Centre
Sep 2019
Really interesting. We were greeted and enjoyed the story telling of a young man who was clearly very committed to the Heritage Centre. He had a really interesting perspective. It was nice to actually learn about the place, rather than just having a quick look.

Very old Muslim shrine
May 2019
This impressive building is located just opposite Amoy Street in Chinatown and beside the Thian Hock Keng chinese temple. It is considered as one of the oldest religious monuments in Singapore. The shrine was built in honour of a holy man named Shahul Hamid Durgha who had visited Singapore.

The architecture of the monument is quite impressive although visiting the monument is less interesting, and probably I would not recommend visiting it unless specifically for religious reasons.

Interesting Museum of Indian Muslims in Singapore
Jan 2019
Well kept, organised and run museum. Has interesting artefacts and historical literature about the emigration, settlement, practice and contribution of Muslims of South Indian origin in early Singapore. Set in a street full of historical sites, it is worth a visit for anyone passing by.

NAGORE DURGAH IN SINGAPORE
Jan 2019 • Family
NAGORE Dargah is a heritage site. It was Built around 1820 by the earliest muslims who came from India. It is built as a memorial to the patron saint of Nagore city in the state of Tamil Nadu India. This specific building was renovated in 2007 and now opened as ‘Nagore Dargah Indian muslim Heritage Cantre’. This place is closely associated with the Indian muslims and you can see the luggage and items of the earliest migrants who came here in search of greener pastures. It is worth a visit with a very friendly guide. The nearest MRT station is Telok Ayer.

This small museum is a good chance to get a closer idea of the indian muslim community in Singapore. The architecture is clerly indian and the inside is taking the shape of a mosque. Now it is considered an Indian muslims heritage center as well as a National monument

A small but interesting museum outlining the history of Indian Muslims in Singapore. Plenty of well labelled and described exhibits along with a collection of photographs.

Lacy Shrine in Singapore built by Muslims from Southern India
May 2017 • Family
Shrine with lacy facade: 2 arched windows flank an arched doorway, with columns in between. There are tiny cutout windows and a small arched doorway in the middle. Two 14-level minarets rise, with 3 tiny domed cutouts on each level and onion domes on top.

Historical religious shrine
Jun 2017 • Friends
Historical shrine built by Muslims from Southern India around 1828. Rebuilt several times from its original wood and thatch to its present form - it could be the oldest religious monument in Singapore.

Sadly it was closed when I went and did not have time to go back. So I had to please myself with reading the plaque inscriptions which gave insight into the building. The building itself is very reminiscent of Indian architecture like those found in Jaipur and other places.
