On a Singapore tour, there is no way that you will miss out on the multi-cultural nature of our little red dot! You will find Churches, Buddhist Temples, Hindu Temples and Mosques. The most famous mosque by far is Masjid Sultan in the historic Kampong Glam district.Here we see two of our guests who visited the Sultan Mosque on their Singapore city tour with us. It was built in 1824 for Sultan Hussein Shah, the first sultan of Singapore. When the Muslim community grew bigger in Singapore having become an important centre for Islamic commerce, culture and art, the mosque soon became too small to accommodate everybody.Around about that time the Masjid Sultan was due for some repairs and Swan and Maclaren, Singapore’s oldest architectural office, created the new mosque that over 5,000 contributed to.  Each dome base is decorated with glass bottle ends, donated by poor Muslims during its construction so that all Muslims, not just the rich, could contribute. If you are taking a Singapore city tour with us your guide will point out the bottles. In 1975 the Masjid Sultan was declared a preserved historical building under the patronage of the Preservation of Monuments Board Act. In January 2016, Singapore’s Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong officiated Completion of the Refurbishment & Restoration project and also inaugurated the Opening of the Glass Lift at the mosque main building. In October 2016, was awarded the prestigious Architectural Heritage Award 2016 from the Urban Redevelopment Authority. Our Singapore day tours are the perfect opportunity for every architecture fan (but also people interested in history) to visit this amazing beautiful building. Ask your Singapore tour guide to include the Sultan Mosque to your itinerary.#design #masjidsultan #photooftheday #singapore #sg #lonelyplanet #hellosingaporetours #ilovesg #hellosg #streetsofsingapore #wanderlust #buildings #sglife #wanderlust #discoversingapore #discoversg #visitsingapore #sultanmosque #kampongglam #multicultural #hometomany #diversity #arabstreet #hajilane
