If you’re looking for something a little different, this is the mosque to visit. The site's architectural style is eclectic, and the intricately designed palace façade features tiny doors and cross-shaped windows.

The mosque itself is very well maintained for its age. The building shows many architectural details. This mosque is located in the Chinatown area and is also close to a Buddha temple. When in Chinatown ask anyone about the mosque and they will direct you there.

Stopped over at this mosque for Zuhur prayer. As the ladies' section is going through renovation, they provide a small but cosy mini praying hall for us to do prayer. The toilet & ablution sections are clean & in order. I left behind my pouch & went back to look for it the next day. Was extremely delighted that the... More

We spent a whole day wandering Singapore's streets looking at as many temples as we could. It was fantastic to see these temples for different religions side by side - the world should take note! A lovely piece of architecture.

This a Mosque in Chinatown, being flanked by hindu and a Chinese Buddhist temple within less than a 5 minute walk. Now this is in my opinion the real attraction. Three world religions existing side by side, I hope they do so in total harmony.

This is an old mosque (masjid) dating back to 1826. It is near Chinatown and Sri Mariamman Temple. It was built for the Tamil Muslim community.

A Mosque is a Mosque is a Mosque. It's old, it's historical and it's worth popping into. It's not incredible but if you don't know anything about Islam then drop in and ask.

I stayed at Chinatown and I happen to passed by this mosque by chance on the way to the hostel. Since I am not a Muslim I just enjoyed watching the building and two minarets from a distance. It is only in Singapore Chinatown where you can find a Muslim mosque, a Hindu Temple and a Buddhist Temple located in... More

Masjid Jamae was established in 1826 and is also known as Chulia Mosque. Interestingly, the same street where the mosque is also home to a Hindu temple and a Buddhist temple, starting with Masjid Jamae. Tourists are allowed to visit the mosque, and footwear are to be left outside the mosque. Ladies are expected to be dressed appropriately, and should... More

Staying in Chinatown

Neighborhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colorful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
