Jamae Mosque

Jamae Mosque

Chinatown & the CBD

The mint-green Jamae Mosque welcomes hundreds of worshippers each day. The current building was completed between 1830 and 1835, and is considered one of Singapore's oldest mosques. Touted as an 'educational mosque' you'll find plenty of information and reading materials about the Muslim faith as you enter (cloaks are also available), and staff are only too happy to answer any questions you may have.
