The only one of its kind in the Islamic world, the first thing you’ll notice is the sundial decorating the main entrance, which has 25 rays decorated with Arabic calligraphy denoting the names of 25 chosen prophets.

It's a nice mosque to visit, if you're in Singapore. You may borrow the propriate clothes there to have your body covered while comming in. They also offer a lot of free literature and leaflets about Islam and their culture, if that's of your interest.

This small mosque is worth a stop as you explore Little India. Despite having visited Little India on many occasions over the years, today was the first time I've actually noticed this mosque, and also the first time I've been inside. There's nothing particularly special...More

I didn't go inside this mosque because I was in a hurry, but the outside architecture was very interesting. Lovely yellow and green combination! It is worth a visit if you're in Little India.
