The Hang Jebat Mosque was opened in 1973 to replace the old surau (Malay: small prayer hall). It comprised two prayer halls, administrative offices and classrooms for religious classes.
The Mosque was named Hang Jebat for two reasons. Firstly, it was in recognition of the Hang Jebat Regiment of a nearby military installation. Secondly, it was in commemoration of Hang Jebat, who was one of the five legendary warriors in the Malay folklore.
The iconic Mosque was known for its close proximity to the former Malayan Railways. Today, the Mosque continues to play an important social role in the neighbourhood by providing religious classes, counselling services and tuition classes.
Join us for a learning journey to understand and experience the rich history of one of the last village-style mosque located in a quiet and vintage area in central Singapore.
