Masjid Al-Huda (Coronation)
In the past this masjid which was built in 1966, served the needs of residents living in the Malay kampung near Sixth Avenue, Bukit Timah.
With resettlement, it now serves the workers in Bukit Timah area and some residents nearby. It can accommodate up to 400 people and has undergone several renovations to improve its facilities.
Its activities are, however, confined to daily and Friday prayers as well as celebrations of Islamic festivities.

A little remnant of history
Believe it or not, the affluent landed properties that dominate this neighbourhood was once a collection of Malay kampongs, predominantly Javanese who had jobs at the old Turf Club and elsewhere in the neighbourhood.
Nowadays, the existence of the mosque could only hint to those bygone years and its history. It would seem a little out of place amidst all the landed properties but there is still some life yet. On Fridays, Friday prayers are still held and well attended by people working nearby. There are also former kampong folks who still make the trip there for prayers. A little like a homecoming for many of them.
