Description:
The Sultan Mosque, or Masjid Sultan in Malay, is a picturesque sight with its golden dome and beautiful clean architecture. Historically proposed by Singapore's former ruler before Sir Standford Raffles, Sultan Hussain Shah, a donation of $3,000 was made by the East Indian Company for the construction of the mosque. In 1924, the mosque was later demolished and replaced with a new mosque headed by Irish architect Denis Santry of British firm Swans & MacLaren who adopted a Indo-Saracenic style, incorporating minarets and balustrades into the design. Donations were made by the poor by their buying and selling glass bottles. Today an internal ring structure made entirely out of glass bottles pays homage to those who contributed despite their financial situation. View Fullscreen Map
