About
A century later in 1928, Denis Santry, an architect of Swan and McLaren, employed the Islamic-Saracenic style that combines ideas from Indian and Islamic traditions, designing a Mosque that incorporated the use of minarets and balusters.

    Another Jewel in Singapore
    Sultan Mosque is located in Arab Street, Kampong Glam area. Beautiful golden dome, a bit similar to Masjid Al Aqsa in Palestine. Tourist should be well dressed and welcomed. Special entry for them. Enjoy external view or visit inside and make the enjoy double.

    Beautiful Mosque
    It’s a very beautiful Mosque. Please be advised that on Fridays, non-muslims cannot enter the premises. There’s an entrance just for visitors/tourists and if you’re not wearing appropriate clothing, they lend you some clothes so you can enter with no issues.

    An Architectural Beauty.
    Closed to visitors when we attended and had to satisfy ourselves with street views of the exterior. It's an impressive building with the golden dome and minarets. The site dates to 1824 when the first mosque was built for Sultan Hussein Shah, first sultan of Singapore, with Sir Stamford Raffles contributing the equivalent of S$3,000.00 to its construction. The present mosque dates to 1932 and was gazetted a National Monument in 1975.

    Nice Mosque!
    Had a chance to offer Friday prayer at this mosque. The main mosque is divided into two parts - the ground floor and the first floor. Since we were well in time, we got place on the ground floor. The inside of the mosque is simple but beautiful. The speech by the imam (in local language) was being translated in English on the flat screens put all around the mosque. I found that quite unique and useful. The area around the mosque is quite crowded and good for small shopping and having a quick bite.

    Pretty outside, not much to see on the inside
    The mosque from the outside is very pretty. The inside was very unsubstantial. Women and men are required to cover up which are available at the front. Men wear a long skirt that covers your knees. Women wear a full length dress. I was expecting more inside from how pretty it was outside. I don’t know anything about the culture so this may be normal. Worth a walk around outside if in the area. Not worth traveling across the city for.

We were given robes to wear at the entrance and felt truly welcomed to visit. Big, beautiful, open, and airy, with huge overhead fans and magnificent chandeliers, it provided a vast open space for prayer. Wall plaques in the rear explained the philosophy of Mohammed (the great prophet) and the Muslim religion (founded on love, acceptance, and peaceful co-existence with others).

Unfortunately, the day we chose to visit the Kampong Glam, the Malaysian District, the Mosque was closed for prayers. still we enjoyed its interesting architecture. While there are many mosque in Singapore. This is the most significant and most historic. While the building is almost 100 years old, the origin of this mosque goes back to the founding of Singapore and honors the Sultan of Johor who granted the land to the British in 1819. The architecture draws on a Saracenic design used by the British in India for Muslim structures, but is not necessarily consistent with Malaysian design. It has 4 minarets and two large onion domes. At the base of each is a shimmering black band made for the bottom of bottles. It is the primary attraction and most significant structure in the Kampong Glam and the very center of daily life in this district.

Sultan Mosque is the focal point of Kampong Glam. The main entrance gate is at the junction of Muscat and Bussorah Street. This present building was designed by the Irish architect Denis Santry of Swan and MacLaren. This building is most outstanding for its two large golden-yellow onion domes. Notice the brown bottles packed closely just below the domes. It was donated by the community. Four tall slender minarets with mini-balconies and octagonal shafts occupy the four corners. It was gazetted as a national monument in 1975.

This mosque reminds me of Asma bint Alvi mosque in Muscat Oman which is also very beautiful with same orange dome but yellow theme. This one however has slightly different architecture but equally subtle green colour.

It's named after Sultan Hussein Shah who was the first sultan of Singapore. It was first built in 1824 when Sultan and his family moved in next door and settled here in the area. It was rebuilt 100 years later in 1928 in current shape and form due to original being just bricks and wood.

Currently its a national monument and very famous cultural landmark other than just a place of worship.

This mosque is a treat to the eyes and a perfect picture spot. The golden dome marvels in the sunlight and cannot be missed during your Singapore trip. However I did not enter the mosque but couldn't be any more impressed even by just looking at it from the outside.

The traditional heartland of the Malay community of Singapore and Sultan Mosque is an edifice of the bygone era. Ethnic Malays still come to this area for shopping and dining especially on weekends and when the prayer time comes, many would congregate here to offer prayers.

Unlike many mosques in other areas in Singapore, the azan is still played on loudspeakers.

This is an iconic Mosque in Singapore. The architecture of this mosque is really beautiful from inside and outside. The mosque has been there since 20th century. I visited this mosque during Maghrib and Friday Jumma prayer. The mosque is really busy during Friday Jumma prayer. This is the only mosque in Singapore where you can hear the Adhan(calling for prayer). This is a very well maintained mosque and everyone I met were very approachable and friendly. I would definitely recommend a visit to this mosque.
