I have taken a few photos of the Sultan Mosque in Singapore. If you are wondering where the Sultan Mosque is located, it is situated along North Bridge Road and Muscat Road. The Sultan Mosque is a beautiful and historical mosque in Singapore. It has a history dating back to 1826. The old mosque later gave way to the construction of a new mosque which was completed in 1928. It remains relatively unchanged in its structure; and the Sultan Mosque is now regarded as a national monument in Singapore.
If you are planning to visit the Sultan Mosque, my suggestion is to take the train ( MRT) and alight at Bugis MRT Station. Thereafter, walk in the direction of North Bridge Road. Along the way, you will pass by Golden Landmark Hotel. By the way, there is a shopping mall next to the hotel. In the mall itself, there are many stores selling traditional malay merchandise such as clothes, food, jewellery and many other products.
After visting the Sultan Mosque, there are many Muslim and Indian Muslim restaurants and stores that are nearby. Just walk in the direction of the 2 storey shophouses that stretch along North Bridge Road.
The Merlion statue has been damaged by lightning during a afternoon thunderstorm. For those who does not know what is a Merlion statue – well it is a 8.6 metre statue which has a head of a Lion and a tail of a fish. Singapore is also known as the Lion city when it is founded; the the fish tail represents the early years when Singapore was simply a fishing village.
The statue of Merlion sits near the central business district close to Raffles Place and at the bank of the Singapore River. Everyday, thousands of tourists goes there to take photos or a movie shot of this iconic Merlion. So it is the most famous icon in Singapore. Try to go there in the evening when it is much cooler and the with the beautiful lights, it is a beautiful place for photo shoot. Also you can see the skyline of Raffles Place and also the Esplanade. There is no entrance fee for visiting the Merlion Park and it is open during the day and night.
I read from the news that the Merlion Park is now closed to the public for repair work. The lightning has damaged the top head of the Merlion statue. Hopefully, the repair work will be completed as soon as possible, so that tourists and locals can go to the Merlion Park again. I will drop by to visit the Merlion statue as soon as it reopen to the public.
