Angullia Mosque, Singapore Overview

Angullia Mosque is a popular mosque established by Mohamed Salleh Eusoofji (MSE) Angullia in the vicinity of Serangoon Road and Little India in Singapore. The Angullia Mosque, or Masjid Angullia, has been an epitome of faith and core Islamic values for more than one hundred and twenty years serving the Muslim community of this area in Singapore. With serene surroundings and surreal Islamic style architecture, the Angullia Mosque is a must-visit for a spiritual detox.

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 Srinivasa 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.
