Musjid Sultan

Better known as Sultan Mosque, this place of worship seemed to dominate the Arab Quarter of Singapore. Wherever I walked, a minaret or the golden dome arose above the buildings.IMG_3507

In the 1820s, the Sultan wanted a mosque near his residence at Kampong Glam, so he organized its construction. The mosque served the community for one hundred years before it was demolished and the bigger, present day one was built.IMG_3504

Winding my way through every street in the area, if I couldn’t see the mosque, I could hear the Azan soared over rooftops.
