Sultan Mosque, also known by the Singaporean Muslims as Masjid Sultan, is the most respected mosque in Singapore. It was originally build for the Sultan (Malay for King). Hence the name Sultan Mosque.
Sultan Mosque is the largest mosque in Singapore and can hold up to 5,000 devotees. It is the most popular tourist destination in Kampong Glam. Tourists can enter and see worshippers praying,
Sultan Mosque was built in 1926, and was designed by an Englishman. May tourists wonder if there is any significance behind the onion shape roof, but it is purely for aesthetical purposes and has nothing to do with religion.
Rich people donated gold while people from humbler backgrounds donated glass bottles. These glass bottles included in the design of the mosque were put under the onion shaped roof, to symbolize that the poor are not forgotten.
The main praying hall is only for men while women pray at level two. They all pray facing the direction of Mecca in Saudi Arabia.
Tourists are allowed to visit in the mornings before the noon prayers.
