Built in 1961 by Muslim members of the British army, this old masjid was renamed Tentera Di Raja in recognition of their contributions. Located in the West and close to the National University of Singapore, it is distinguished by its minaret topped by a gold-painted dome.

Interesting name....

For a mosque that has only one level, it is pretty huge. It could accommodate up to 1000, more I think with some creativity. Located on top of a hill, it is a nice quiet location to have a mosque built there. If anyone could integrate a little garden, it would be just perfect.

I am very interested to know more about how the mosque ended up being named Masjid Tentera Di-Raja which translates to "Royal Army". It is a highly unusual name for a mosque. I'll write more as I learn more of its history.
