This highly publicized mosque in the Arab Street neighborhood of Singapore is rather blend and uninspiring. If this is your first mosque, by all means, please do visit. If you have seen some of the - for example - outstanding Turkish and Istanbul mosques that are of exceptional architectural and artistic beauty, you will be underwhelmed. Meh!

The mosque was very clean, that include the toilet and place to us to clean our body before our prayer ( wudhu). But unfortunately I had my period at that time so I forbid to pray. I just went to their toilet.

Arab street is a beautiful street and the mosque is a good finish.
But i have to say that the mosque is not so beautiful as i expected.
Exterior is more beautiful than the inside if you want an advice.

The Sultan Mosque is one of the most important mosques in Singapore and it makes an interesting place to visit as well. Its worth reading up a bit on the historical role this mosque played in Singapores early days and history before visiting.

Entrance is free and you can take pictures inside. As expected, shoes much be removed, they also ask visitors to wear a gown cover as well, which is quick to slip on and off. No audio guides are available for this visit but there is some information about the mosque on both sides of the main worship area just after you enter the mosques. Visits can be done in 10-15 minutes are are free, making the mosque well worth visiting if you plan to spend some time in this area of the city.

The interior area of the mosque that can be visited is spacious, decorated in simple manner. The exterior of the mosque is quite attractive, particularly when viewed from along Bussorah Street which affords you a nice full scale view of the Mosque. Up close, it is also nice, when facing opposite the sun so that your pictures are not bleached.

In addition to visiting the Sultan Mosque, its worth spending a bit of time walking up and down Arab St., Oman St. and nearby Haji Lane while you are in this area. Just across the street from the mosque is a great little restaurant called Singapore Zam Zam that is worth a quick stop for the murtabak dishes, where are excellent.

Overall, not one of the top priority attractions in Singapore but a place worth visiting if you plan to be in this area of the city.
