Long long time ago, Sultan Hussein Shah signed the Treaty to hand Singapore over to the East India Company. In return, he was given a sum of $3,000 by the Company to build a mosque. With additional financial help from local Muslims, the Masjid Sultan Mosque was built. While the Masjid Sultan Mosque we see at Kampong Glam has been rebuilt, it is still one of the oldest mosque in Singapore.
With Hari Raya Puasa just around the corner, it is a good idea to tour around Kampong Glam and give the mosque a visit. All you need to do is to take off your shoes, put down any prejudice, and a guide will introduce you to the mosque and let you learn a little about Muslims.
