Panorama of the interior of the Sultan Mosque in Singapore. There are more than 80 mosques in Singapore but the Sultan Mosque is the center of the Muslim community of Singapore.
The first mosque on this site was built in 1826. It was partially funded by the East India Company as part of their agreement with Sultan Hussein which saw the sovereign rights to Singapore handed over to the EIC, while the Sultan retained Kampong Gelam.
The current Sultan Mosque was built in 1928 using donations from the Muslim community. The architect was an Irish man, Denis Santry. The mosque has classic onion domes and is topped with crescent moons. The base of the dome inside is a ring of black bottles. The carpet was donated by the prince of Saudi Arabia and bears his emblem.
Sultan Mosque sits on the west end of Arab Street and close to Kampong Glam.
