Al-Abrar (Koochoo Pally)
A distinctive mosque, it bears the imprint of South Indian architecture with its narrow frontages which are defined by two minaret-style towers.
It was established in 1827 but it was only in 1855, that the brick building was completed.
In 1974, the masjid located in Chinatown was gazetted as a national monument.
With a capacity of 500, it serves the needs of office workers in the Shenton Road and Chinatown areas.

One of the oldest..
This mosque is one of the oldest existing mosques in Singapore. It was most likely built by Indian Muslim traders and businessmen who came within the first few years of the founding of modern Singapore.
The original building, of course, is long gone. What you see now, was the result of a few rebuilding efforts to improve on the original. However, the architecture of the mosque is very distinctive and sets it apart from others.
If you are around the Amoy Street area and looking for a place to pray, do stop by. The moment you step into the prayer hall, the hustle and bustle of the streets outside suddenly disappears.
