Photo Travel Asia| Sultan Mosque Singapore Hari Raya Celebration
The Sultan Mosque in Singapore was built in 1824 and gazetted as a national monument in 1975. After one month of dawn-to-dusk fasting during Ramadan, the first three days of Hari Raya Aidilfitri are celebrated on a grand scale in Singapore. Hari Raya celebration is colourful and facinating and probably the best time to witness Malay culture and heritage in Singapore. There is no better time to visit Sultan Mosque in Singapore than on Hari Raya.
Sultan Mosque Singapore will also go through a S$3.45million upgrade which will start in August 2014 and expected to complete in the 4 quarter of 2015. As a photographer based in Singapore it was an opportunity to capture the building and the people around the mosque during Hari Raya celebration before the major renovation.
