Angullia Mosque, Singapore Overview

As the dawn sets in and the chirp of birds announces the arrival of another day, the Serangoon locality of Singapore is filled with the resounding chants of the morning Azaan in the beautiful Angullia Mosque. Commonly referred to as the Masjid Angullia, this quaint place of worship was first built in the 1890s by Mohammed Salleh Eusoof Angullia.

The magnificent Angullia Mosque is renowned for its brick and plastered gatehouse. The terrace, featuring eight freestanding columns, each topped by a finial, adds to the charm of the structure. This gatehouse facing Serangoon Road was conserved as one of the seventy-five buildings falling under the Urban Redevelopment Authority's Master Plan. Masjid Angullia is not only a place of religious worship and social activities among locals and tourists alike, but with the Sri Srinavasa Perumal Temple on one side and Sri Veeramakaliamman Temple on the other, it also stands as a witness to the religious diversity in the Little India district of Singapore.

More on Angullia Mosque


The history of Angullia Mosque dates back to the 1890s. MSE Angullia, in his Last Will, asserted that this religious place "shall always remain and be a public place of worship for all Mohammedans". Previously rebuilt in 1970, the iconic Angullia Mosque is once again under development in order to increase the capacity of worshippers, mainly consisting of South Asian workers from India and Bangladesh, which seem to increase on a daily basis. During festivals, the mosque is packed elbow-to-elbow with devotees spilling over to the surrounding fields, and as a result, they have to be admitted by batches. Addressing this inconvenience, the management board of the two-storied mosque has come up with a new infrastructural plan to triple its capacity, and the estimated cost for it is SGD 88.6 million. An entire level devoted to female worshippers, a heritage gallery, classrooms, an auditorium, wedding facilities and a central kitchen are to be included in the renovated building. The new structure will be built upon Indian Muslim architectural style with domes, arches and pillars. The construction is supposed to be completed by late 2019.
