Overview

A famous Arab spice trader and philanthropist named Syed Sharif Omar Aljunied was responsible for the building of this mosque in 1820. Its purpose was to serve the religious needs of Malay fishermen, Bugis merchants and Malaccan businessmen. Incidentally, this was the first place of worship in Singapore. However, the building that stands before you today is the third one built on the site. A minaret on the building was only added in 1985.
