Photographer's Note

The partial silhouette of the Sultan Mosque against the late evening sky.

"Named after the first Sultan of Singapore, the imposing structure that is the Sultan Mosque was built with a SGD3,000 grant from the East India Company. This is the largest mosque in Singapore and the present building was constructed in 1928. With its massive gold-topped dome and spacious prayer hall, the mosque has one particularly interesting feature--the base of the dome is made up of glass bottles. In the evenings, residents gather at the garden to enjoy the cool breezes and let the hassles of the day slip away." Source:,34390/85/record.html
