Prayer rooms in Central Singapore

Even while out and about, Muslims are not excused from prayers – so you might often find yourself scouring for the nearest prayer room when the time for worship nears. These days, malls and offices have dedicated spaces for Muslims to conveniently and comfortably do their prayers before enjoying their day out.

Here’s a list of prayer rooms – or musollahs – you can head to before meeting your friends for your next hangout in town.

You’ll pass a toilet along the way, where you can take your ablution. Continue along the same path and you’ll find the open air musollah behind parking lots 434 and 435. Do take note that there are no separate areas for males and females.
