The Abdul Gafoor Mosque is located in the area known as Kampong Kapor, which was a business hub for Indian merchants and those who worked at the old race course at Farrer Park. The mosque was completed in 1910 and has recently been restored.
The first thing you’ll notice is the sundial decorating the main entrance, which has 25 rays decorated with Arabic calligraphy denoting the names of 25 chosen prophets.
