View the golden domes and prayer hall of one of the country's most prominent religious buildings, the 19th-century Sultan Mosque. Built in 1824 for Sultan Hussain, this mosque remains a landmark of the historic Kampong District. The structure was rebuilt in 1934 by Singapore's oldest architectural form, Swan and Maclaren. The most remarkable part of the current structure, which was named a national monument in 1975, is the glass dome created from glass bottle ends donated by Muslims so that even the most poor community members could have the chance to contribute to the mosque.
