SULTAN MOSQUE:

Overview:
The mosque, completed in 1932, holds great significance for the Muslim community, and is considered the national mosque of Singapore. It was designated a national monument in 1975.

Within the mosque, the rectangular prayer hall is defined by 12 octagonal columns. Two storeys high and large enough to hold 5,000 worshippers, the central atrium of the hall is enclosed by a second-storey gallery.

Over the years, the mosque has been an important focal point for religious, cultural and social activities. During Ramadan, the Muslim month of fasting, a popular night market with numerous food stalls springs up in the vicinity of the mosque, where Muslims gather to await the prayer call to break their fast at sunset. During Hari Raya, it is customary for the mufti, the head of the Muslim Religious Council, to deliver sermons at the mosque.
