The leaning tower of the Hajjah Fatimah Mosque from 1825 looks more like a church steeple than a minaret. It was built in 1845 by a Malay heiress married to a Bugis. Here the waters of the quaint well are still used by worshippers to wash themselves before they enter the recently restored skylight roofed hallway leading into the main hall to pray.
Hajjah Fatimah Mosque has been re-constructed by the only Malay architect women who would like to preserved the originality of the mosque.

Address: At 4001 Beach Road, Singapore
