Hajjah Fatimah Mosque

Hajjah Fatimah Mosque

Unique Singapore sight

Experience the influence of Bugis settlers in Singapore when you make a short visit to the Hajjah Fatimah Mosque. Built in 1846, the Hajjah Fatimah Mosque was named after a Malacca-born Malay who married a wealthy Bugis sultan from Celebes.

The mosque was built on the site of Hajjah Fatimah's former house at Java Road. She designated the land for the building of a mosque after surviving a fire at her home caused by arsonists. Enclosed by a high wall, the Hajjah Fatimah Mosque compound comprises a prayer hall, a mausoleum (where Hajjah Fatimah is buried), the quarters of an Imam (Malay priest), an ablution area, several annexes and a garden. 

Perhaps the most unusual feature you’ll notice here is a distinctive minaret designed by an unidentified European architect. The tower leans about six degrees off centre – making this one of the most unique sights in Singapore.
