There is a certain majesty to the Sultan Mosque that draws you towards it. A spiritual stillness lingers inside its marble-white walls that can feel like a breath of fresh air. Step inside, and you will be greeted with a spacious place of worship, reminiscent of a royal court. In fact, the mosque was built in 1824 for Sultan Hussein Shah to be near his palace in Kampong Glam, the current Malay Heritage Centre.
Just observing the magnificent golden dome, Saracenic style, from the street will fill you with a sense of wonder. Move closer, and you will see that the smaller onion domes are fitted with a glass base, contributed by the poorer section of the community in 1932, when the Sultan Mosque was rebuilt.
