My photo
This blog is an amateur photographer's attempt to show how beautiful the world really is. He is drawn to the colors of nature like a moth to a candle light. What are showcased here are nature's grand display of colors at sunrise and sunset, beautiful beaches and off-the-beaten track locations in his beloved Philippines, waterfalls and some of nature's great sculptures, architectural gems, and other views from around SE Asia that he was fortunate to see at one point.

singapore | chinatown: masjid jamae


Masjid Jamae

Masjid Jamae, located in Chinatown’s “3-temple street” and just adjacent to the Hindu temple, is one of Singapore’s oldest mosque (established in 1826)

Masjid Jamae

Quick facts about the mosque:
  • Also known as Chulia Mosque, Maideen Mosque and the Big Mosque among the Tamil Muslim community in Singapore
  • The street beside it is now aptly called Mosque Street
  • the mosque has remained largely unchanged since its completion in 1830
  • Also considered of Singapore’s National Monuments
Its distinct architecture characterized by the twin minarets and its green color makes it a recognizable landmark.

One can feel a sense of calm and peace inside the mosque [quick note: green robes are available at the entrance if you are wearing inappropriate clothes. Remember to leave your footwear as well].
