Majestically standing in the historic district of Kampong Glam, the Sultan Mosque (Masjid Sultan) is Singapore's largest mosque and focal point of the Muslim community in the Lion City. Seemingly pulled out of the Arabian Nights, the enchanting mosque is constructed in the Indo-Saracenic style, the highlight being the huge prayer hall topped by a shimmering golden dome. Both regarding its glorious appearance, and the sheer size, the Sultan Mosque is a must-visit if one is in the Kampong Glam district.
Bringing with it the rich taste of culture and ethnic diversity of the Muslims of Singapore, Masjid Sultan was gazetted as a National Monument in the year 1975. It was built in 1824 for Sultan Hussein Shah, the first sultan of Singapore, with the help of a grant from Sir Raffles, the founder of Singapore. Today, it stands as a reminder of Malay royalty than once housed in the region. Non-Muslims are refrained from entering the main prayer hall at all times, while one is expected to dress modestly when visiting the Sultan Mosque. If visiting during the Ramadan month, make sure to check out the dazzling night markets in the area.
