The Hajjah Fatimah Mosque is one of the most famous mosques. Located in Kampong Glam and known for its colourful history, the Hajjah Fatimah Mosque was constructed in 1846. It is, in fact, one of the rare mosques that are named after a female. She was an aristocrat who once lived on Java Road, and after thievery in the 1830s resulting in a fire, she donated the land she owned for the construction of the mosque. Today, the mosque is renowned for its stunning design; featuring high walls and the classic design of both Malaccan and European style.

The Nagore Dargah is another famous stop among Singapore’s mosques. This shrine was built by Singapore’s South Indian Muslim immigrants from 1828 to 1830, with the peach and white shrine being a majestic replica of the Tamil Nadu shrine located in India. A major highlight of this mosque is its façade as it has a niche with 14 tiers topped off by a magnificent crown with many different intricate motifs and arches.

One of the oldest Singapore mosques is the Masjid Al-Abrar. Also known as the Kuchu Palli or the Masjid Chulia, this mosque was gazetted as a national monument. It is significant because it was built as a homage to the Chulia immigrants who once lived here, at the height of the colonial era.

The Jamae Mosque is another worth visiting. It’s considered one of Singapore’s best construction marvels and is one of the oldest in Chinatown. Predominantly Indian in design, the mosque features Neo-classical elements and Indo-Muslim style.

There are many other famous Singapore mosques worth visiting. These include the Sultan Mosque, Masjid Abdul Gafoor, Masjid Malabar, Masjid Bencoolen, and many more.
