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.

Strikingly designed building that looks as if it's straight out of Arabian Nights! Not a must see but if you're in the Kampong Glam area, worth travelling past for pics from the outside and a brief look inside the prayer room

It’s pretty impressive from the outside but there’s not much to see inside. Most people would be ok with a walk-by. Admission is free.

Sultan Mosque is a great place to start your tour of Kampong Gelam and Little India. The area is rich with culture and vividly colorful.

Beautiful architecture and very interesting inside. You can visit only a little portion of it, still you can appreciate the beauty of the place.
