This mosque is very close to the Chinatown area on the main street of South Bridge Road. Were it not for the two pagoda style towers at the front of the building, it would be a rather innocuous looking building. There’s not much to see inside because visitors are limited to walking around the corridor which is just full of information about Islam and proselytisation. So unless you’ve literally never encountered Islam, then stick to admiring the building from the outside only.

This is one of Singapore's oldest mosques, dating to 1827 to serve Chulia migrants. The name board is titled 'Masjid Jamae (Chulia)' in recognition of the Tamil Muslims from Southern India who built three mosques in the area. We could not visit as the building is undergoing renovations. It has a short street front; the entrance gate flanked by minarets and retains its original form.

Masjid Jamae was established in 1826 and is also known as Chulia Mosque. Interestingly, the same street where the mosque is also home to a Hindu temple and a Buddhist temple, starting with Masjid Jamae.

Tourists are allowed to visit the mosque, and footwear are to be left outside the mosque. Ladies are expected to be dressed appropriately, and should your attire be deemed not appropriate, there are robes available (at no charge) for you to be covered up.

You basically enter the mosque through a arched gateway on top of which 2 minarets stands. You are allowed to enter the prayer area, although not the carpeted area where the Muslims worshippers pray. It is said that the mosque is aligned to Mecca

When visiting Chinatown you can stop by and make a quick visit to the Jamae Mosque which is interestingly located on South Bridge Road just very near to the Sri Marimman Hindu temple and the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple and Museum. This is a very good example of the religious and cultural tolerances that can be found in Singapore with people of different faiths living and coexisting in great harmony with one another.

The Mosque itself is quite small and can visited in a short amount of time. It is nice to see but not as impressive or memorable as other mosques you may have visited elsewhere. It is also less of an impact visit compared to the nearby Hindu and Buddhist temples which are found on the same street. As such, if you are short on time while in Chinatown, we might suggest targeting the others first but if time permits, a visit the Jamae Mosque as well.

If you are particularly interested in visiting mosques during your time in Singapore, you might also want to make your way to Arab Street in the Bugis District to find the very large and impressive Sultan Mosque.

I stayed at Chinatown and I happen to passed by this mosque by chance on the way to the hostel. Since I am not a Muslim I just enjoyed watching the building and two minarets from a distance. It is only in Singapore Chinatown where you can find a Muslim mosque, a Hindu Temple and a Buddhist Temple located in close proximity and all these places of worship are visited by devotees.

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 free copy of The Qu'ran (in English) and another book that explained the similaries and differences between Islam and Christianity, after we expressed an interest to read more ... there were so many aspects of the faith that struck a chord with us, and we wanted to learn more. There are cloaks readily available if you turn up in shorts and/or with bare arms.

Another must see on your visit to chinatown. One of the earliest mosques in Singapore dating back to 1826. I brought my own headscarf and made sure I wore long trousers and top that covered my shoulders as a matter of respect, but they can give you clothes to cover up if you arrive dressed inappropriately. A man greeted us when we arrived and showed us around giving us a brief history of the temple. It is very small and you only need a short visit. Free to get in but there is a donation box if you wish to donate. The man showing us around gave out an aura of peace, tolerance and genuinely wanted us to understand this is the basis of muslim followers. lovely interesting visit.

From the outside, you would not really want to enter this rather plain looking building. I was lucky. Someone invited me in and treated me to a talk about its history and then asked if I had questions on Islam. My appreciation of my visit was based on his friendliness and charm, matched by a non intrusive offer to talk about religion. It was that gentleness and friendliness that made the visit worthwhile.

This is Muslim Mosque in Chinatown area. While we were not able to go inside, we enjoyed the exterior. What is so interesting is this is just down the street from a Hindu Temple and the Buddha Tooth Relic Temple. Three religions next to each other.

This mosque, also known as The Green Mosque, is one of the oldest in Singapore. An interesting thing about the area is that there is this Muslim mosque, a Buddhist temple, a Hindu temple, and a Christian church within blocks of each other. People who worship at all of them live and work in the area and co-exist without conflict according to a native with whom we spoke. You may not enter during worship times, otherwise tourists are welcome assuming they put the appropriate coverings on (which are provided at the door and may be returned when leaving).
