Jamae Mosque

Jamae Mosque

Mosques in Chinatown

Built in 1826, the Jamae Mosque was the first of three mosques in Chinatown erected by the Chulias, who were Tamil Muslims from the Coromandel Coast of Southern India. Together with its neighbour, Sri Mariamman Temple, the mosque stands out in its predominantly Chinese location.

If you’re looking for something a little different, this is the mosque to visit. The site’s architectural style is eclectic, and the intricately designed palace façade features tiny doors and cross-shaped openings. While the entrance gate is in the Indo-Islamic style, the prayer hall possess neoclassical features.

This mosque was gazetted as a national monument on 29 November 1974.
