The only one of its kind in the Islamic world, the first thing you’ll notice is the sundial decorating the main entrance, which has 25 rays decorated with Arabic calligraphy denoting the names of 25 chosen prophets.

Beautiful architecture! The mosque welcomes non-Muslim visitors outside pray times to have a look around. Guide was available to show you around. Visitors needed to be dressed modestly (over clothes are available to be worn) if they wished to enter the mosque. Around the mosque...More

It's a nice mosque to visit, if you're in Singapore. You may borrow the propriate clothes there to have your body covered while comming in. They also offer a lot of free literature and leaflets about Islam and their culture, if that's of your interest.

With a strong local Indian community, this pocket of
Singapore can feel like another place and time. Wander

Listen to the Bollywood music echoing from storefronts
and take in the stalls selling bright flowers,
