8 | Shopping & More: Masjid Sultan

Repost from @leehsienloong ・・・ Sultan Mosque, the gem of the historic Kampong Glam area, is turning a grand old age of 191 this year. It was recently upgraded, and I visited it yesterday to celebrate the completion of the works. The mosque is a focal point for religious, cultural and social activities. Besides running charity and outreach programmes, it also conducts seminars and talks, and hosts visiting dignitaries and religious scholars. My thanks to all those who worked on the upgrading project — the Board of Trustees and the Mosque Management Board of Sultan Mosque, their chairman Haji Mohamed Patail, the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore (MUIS) and National Heritage Board. Their support, and the support of donors and the Muslim community, has kept the mosque a beautiful landmark for all to enjoy. – LHL (Photo by me)

Singapore being a multiracial country has many unique areas whereby you can see the significant presence of a certain race. Just like Chinatown and Little India, Kampong Glam was restored to bring a new breath of life to the area.
