If you’re looking for something a little different, this is the mosque to visit. The site's architectural style is eclectic, and the intricately designed palace façade features tiny doors and cross-shaped windows.

We visited the 'Green Mosque' when walking around Chinatown, and were very glad that we did. The young man on reception was very welcoming and gave us an unexpected tour of the mosque, and provided a really good insight into the Muslim faith and practices. We learned a great deal and found our visit fascinating. He also gave us a... More

Jamae Mosque also known as Masjid Chulia is located in Chinatown. Along with its neighbour, Sri Mariamman Temple, this has been a prominent landmark of the city. Built in 1826, this is one of the oldest mosque in Singapore. Gazetted as a national monument, it is worth a visit.

The mosque itself is very well maintained for its age. The building shows many architectural details. This mosque is located in the Chinatown area and is also close to a Buddha temple. When in Chinatown ask anyone about the mosque and they will direct you there.

Stopped over at this mosque for Zuhur prayer. As the ladies' section is going through renovation, they provide a small but cosy mini praying hall for us to do prayer. The toilet & ablution sections are clean & in order. I left behind my pouch & went back to look for it the next day. Was extremely delighted that the... More

We spent a whole day wandering Singapore's streets looking at as many temples as we could. It was fantastic to see these temples for different religions side by side - the world should take note! A lovely piece of architecture.

This a Mosque in Chinatown, being flanked by hindu and a Chinese Buddhist temple within less than a 5 minute walk. Now this is in my opinion the real attraction. Three world religions existing side by side, I hope they do so in total harmony.

This is an old mosque (masjid) dating back to 1826. It is near Chinatown and Sri Mariamman Temple. It was built for the Tamil Muslim community.

A Mosque is a Mosque is a Mosque. It's old, it's historical and it's worth popping into. It's not incredible but if you don't know anything about Islam then drop in and ask.

Staying in Chinatown

Neighbourhood Profile
Chinatown
Chinatown is a classic combination of colourful sights, enticing smells, and sometimes startling sounds. The precinct is unique, however, in its blending of religions and cultures. A Hindu temple, an Islamic mosque, and a Chinese Buddhist temple sit almost side by side. This sense of cultural harmony continues as you venture just outside of Chinatown to the nightlife areas of Club Street and Duxton Hill. There you’ll mingle with Singapore’s multicultural residents at the modern bars and restaurants dotting the bustling streets. An afternoon in and around Chinatown will leave you culturally enlightened, well fed, and loaded with souvenirs. In the evening, reward yourself with a well-deserved cocktail as the locals come out to play.
