We have visited plenty of times the area around Sultan Mosque. The actual mosque looks quite pretty on the outside and to be honest we never had any attempts to visit the inside.

“Beautiful and serene”
Reviewed 4 June 2014

Although this mosque may not not aesthetically pleasing to the eye as others its beauty lies in its simplicity, its beautiful gold dome and its rich history. There is a feeling of great serenity and tranquility to be found here which is not always found in 'bigger and grander' mosques. There are fans to be found in the mosque and not the modern ac but we absolutely loved it.

We visited several times and were overwhelmed by its sense of peace and humility, its welcoming air to all, a reflection of its humble origins in the 19th century.

Literally opposite the mosque are several eating places which appear to be very popular and price friendly.

One of the biggest and most amazing religious structures in Singapore which is very impressive. The huge Golden Dome is notable.
Its one of the must visit attraction here.
If you would like to visit inside you may have to look for the visiting hours. They do have some restrictions.
you get lots of halal restaurants nearby to hog delicious food.

“Fantastic cultural site”
Reviewed 12 May 2014

We respectfully visited this working Mosque and enjoyed the experience. Upon arrival my partner was asked to cover herself with a robe which was provided by the Mosque.

This historic Mosque is worth visiting and the scripture contained within it is very interesting.

“Old Singapore Heritage”
Reviewed 2 May 2014

In a city which is so famously modern, the Sultan Mosque provides a wonderful look at old Singapore. Originally built in 1824 in the heart of the Malay / Muslim part of town called Kampong Glam. The mosque was enlarged to this gold domed version in 1926. It is possible to visit between 10-12 and 2-4. Inside is rather sparse, just pale green walls and lots of ceiling fans. You aren't allowed to walk on any carpeted areas.
The mosque sits within a network of very peaceful and picturesque lanes with exotic names such as Muscat St & Kandahar St. Pedestrianised Bussorah St lined with palm trees leads directly to the mosque. Nearest MRT station is Bugis.
