This masjid was inspired by Sumatran Minang architecture. Its brown structure stands out from the drab high-rise housing estate in Telok Blangah.
It was built in 1991 with resources from the Mosque Building Fund and with an approximate capacity of 3000, it is one of the biggest mosques in Singapore.

You can actually get lost in this mosque
Al-Amin Mosque was a mosque that I discovered while island hopping a few years back. It is located just before SAFRA Mt Faber. Honestly, I thought that it is a "little" out of the way.
The building itself is a monstrosity. It is enormous for a town mosque but it does give you an indication of the size of the Muslim community in that area. There are many rooms and levels. I actually got lost trying to look for the ablution area. The layout of this mosque is not exactly intuitive.
I'd reckon that with some ingenuity you can have more than 3000 worshippers in this mosque though I wonder if that would contravene any building or fire safety codes.
You can't miss this mosque. Size aside, their distinctive Minangkabauesque roof sets it apart from many other mosques. I never had the chance to perform Friday prayers here. But the conventional wisdom should be to arrive earlier to get a nice comfortable spot. Just like any other mosques on a Friday.
