The Masjid Sultan Mosque

The mosque is one of the country’s most impressive religious buildings, constructed in 1824 for Sultan Hussein Shah, the first Sultan of Singapore and funded by Sir Stamford Raffles, the founder of Singapore and the world-renowned Raffles Hotel. The mosque was rebuilt in 1932 due to deterioration. While you are there, inspect the onion-shaped domes as each dome base features glass bottle ends, donated by lower-income Muslims during its construction so that all Muslims, not just the rich, could contribute in its completion.
