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.

    Amazing mosque
    The Sultan Mosque is truly the jewel in the crown of Singapore. It is located really close to Bugis Station [close to Raffles Hospital] and Queen Street Bus Station. The architecture is utterly breathtaking, the inside is beautiful and the recitation is melodious and heartfelt. I had the outstanding pleasure of praying many salaat at this majid during my 5 weeks tenure in SG. I highly recommend going a little early and praying a few rakat's of sunnah or nafil if you want to be in the front rows! I highly recommend visiting this mosque near Arab Street because its super Instagramable! But for non-Muslim's, do be aware that this is a functioning mosque, with daily prayers, funeral prayers, marriages etc being conducted. Also, please be aware of the traditions of Islam and the Muslim people- please do not attend in clothes that do not cover your body fully [shoulders uncovered, short shorts/skirts/dresses] and only enter through gate 5 at the designated tour times- it's a functioning mosque for the local and international muslim community and can cause serious and deep offence. Highly recommended!

    An Absolute Treasure!
    I have visited SG several times but never been to Arab Street ever until in Dec'19. It is an absolute treasure, charming and very fascinating in terms of ambiance around the area, artistic boutique stores, lots of fabrics shops, Arabian lanterns, perfume, carpets, beautiful mosque etc. The iconic Sultan Mosque stands in middle of the area. The mosque staffs were pretty welcoming and allow everyone to enter and take a glace of beautiful beige and emerald colour interior. It felt calm and serene in that single wide opened hall which is beautifully decorated with beautiful carpet and gifted chandeliers from Arab nations. Right in front of the mosque, plenty of Mediterranean, Malay, Turkish, Moroccan alfresco dining options are available. We had a beautiful long lunch in one of restaurants (no alcohol though). I would highly recommend anyone visiting Singapore who likes a bit of history and old treasure..

    Really interesting visit with great guides
    We casually walked to Kampong Glam because we were nearby, and we had to visit the Sultan Mosque. It was really nice as they provided clothing for us because we were wearing shorts, so even if you are not wearing appropriately, you can still go in! The guides inside were very friendly and approachable as well, and can speak many languages. There were information galleries once you enter and you can use the interactive screens to know more about the etiquette and history of the mosque itself. Although we only walked around the first floor, we spent a good 1 hour reading and talking with the guides.

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.

As a solo woman explorer Singapore is brilliant. The city has great hop-on and off buses if you are on sightseeing mode, the night life is fabulously safe and everything is very close.

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.

After an original mosque was built on the site in 1824 for the first Sultan of Singapore, this impressive building, with it's onion shaped domes, was erected in 1928 and now stands as a national monument. Although we didn't venture inside the beautiful architecture can be admired externally and I adored the gold detailing.

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 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.
