Create an itinerary including Sultan Mosque
View the golden domes and prayer hall of one of the country's most prominent religious buildings, the 19th-century Sultan Mosque. Built in 1824 for Sultan Hussain, this mosque remains a landmark of the historic Kampong District. The structure was rebuilt in 1934 by Singapore's oldest architectural form, Swan and Maclaren. The most remarkable part of the current structure, which was named a national monument in 1975, is the glass dome created from glass bottle ends donated by Muslims so that even the most poor community members could have the chance to contribute to the mosque.

  • An amazing mosque that is surrounded by Arabic food and culture. Extremely walkable from the train. Lots of food and drink options and more than enough places to take photos around. They have a prayer. Chill bringing to sit and listen to the prayer.
  • Spiritual , magnificent!!! If you want to experience the historical Islamic culture of Singapore then this mosque connects you beautifully to it.. Enjoy the nice ambience (shops+restaurants) outside for a unique experience . You will love it

Built in 1824, this landmark of the Kampong Glam district attracts many who are keen to learn about Malay History & Culture. The Sultan Mosque, built in 1824, is a landmark of the Kampong Glam district which attracts many who are keen to discover the culture & history of Malays. Also known as Masjid Sultan, the mosque’s name pays homage to Sultan Hussein Mohamed Shah, the first Sultan of Singapore and 18th ruler of Johor. In 1975, it was gazetted as a national monument. The mosque’s mass prayer hall can host up to 5,000 visitors. While its 2 giant golden domes make for an impressive sight, their bases are adorned with glass bottle ends, which were donated by Muslims during its construction.
