  Sultan Mosque

This lovely looking Mosque was built between 1924 - 1928 and is the largest in Singapore.

Of interest here, is the gold-coloured dome that sits on a ringed structure made up entirely of glass bottles.
The story behind it is, the rich people donated gold, and the poorer people raised funds by collecting and selling used glass bottles.
The mosque combines ideas from Indian and Islamic traditions, hence, the domes, minarets and balustrades as well as being modern and user-friendly.
