Masjid Moulana Mohd Ali Hot
Located at the basement of UOB Plaza, right smack in the Central Business District, this mosque is a picture of contrast to the hustle and bustle above. Completed in 1994, it serves the needs of office workers around Raffles Place.
With a capacity of 800 people, the usually peaceful abode of tranquility is transformed into a sea of worshippers clad in long-sleeved shirts and business ties during Friday prayers.
Activities are mostly confined to daily and Friday prayers and religious lectures on an ad-hoc basis.

There's a mosque here?
Walking past UOB Plaza and perhaps the whole length of Boat Quay, one would not have guessed that there is a mosque at the basement. To give you an idea where it is, locate the McDonald's at the end of Boat Quay. The mosque is just opposite the entrance to McDonald's. It's that easy.
Once you are in the basement, you will be greeted by a blast of cool air as the entire basment mosque is air conditioned. If you happen to be alone, you will also find an overwhelming sense of quiet that makes you wish for some ambient noise. That just goes to show how noisy our world is that once we are put into a place of absolute silence, we get disoriented.
