Masjid Bencoolen

Masjid Bencoolen is a mosque built inside a 12-storey serviced apartment complex within Somerset in Singapore.

The mosque was first built in 1825, but in 1845 it was replaced by another mosque built by Syed Omar bin Aljunied; an Arab merchant.

It was demolished then rebuilt again in 2001 because the area was experiencing rapid growth. The mosque, as we know it today, was then integrated into Somerset Bencoolen; a mixed-use residential development.

Following renovations, the mosque reopened its doors to the public in 2004 with new and improved facilities and the ability to accommodate up to 1,000 worshippers in its fully air-conditioned prayer hall.

One of Masjid Bencoolen’s unique features is its Indian heritage; evident in virtually everything from the signboards to its official name. Religious classes and services are also held in Tamil.

It gets extremely busy on Fridays as devotees from nearby offices stop by for Friday prayers (Congregational prayer).
