Masjid Sultan Singapura

Sultan Mosque, Singapore

The Sultan Mosque is located in Kampung Glam next to the Malaysia Heritage Center. The mosque was gazetted as a national monument in 1975.

The current structure was built in the 1920s. An annex building, in a similar style was added in 1993. The site originally had a mosque built in 1826 by Sultan Hussain with funds from the East India Company. I found it interesting the architect for the mosque in the 1920s was Irish.

Sultan Mosque and annex

I am guessing that the building on the right of this photo is the annex, but that is just my guess. All photos by John Hunter – see more of my Singapore photos.

The area around the Mosque is interesting. This street had several shops and restaurants. It is a nice area to walk around, very near Arab street. Little India and Little China are also nearby. The closest metro station is Bungis: East-West (green) and DownTown (blue) lines – use exit E).
