Sultan Mosque (Masjid Sultan)
Singapore's largest mosque
What we say:
The Sultan Mosque is the heart and soul of Kampong Glam, the area of Singapore designated for Muslims when the British took over in the early 1880s.
The original mosque was part of the Sultan's palace complex, hence the name, but the current building with its iconic golden dome was built in 1924 by noted colonial architecture firm Swan and Maclaren.
Sultan Mosque is Singapore's largest mosque and the prayer hall nears its capacity of 5,000 during Friday afternoon prayers.
Guided tours for non-Muslims are available outside of prayer times and females will need to cover up.
