via Channel NewsAsia, 31 May 2020: Two researchers in Singapore looking to trace the location of old mosques in Singapore – there are more than one might think. You can follow their Facebook page Lost Mosques of Singapore
Mosques of the past were generally found along Singapore’s coastal areas and riverine networks, Mr Sarafian said.
There were mosques found further inland, but these were fewer than those found along coastal areas, he added.
These included Masjid Haji Osman in Seranggong Kechil (now Serangoon), and Masjid Wak Sumang at Kampong Punggol (now Punggol Point), he said, noting various sources point to Kampong Punggol as one of the earliest settlements prior to the arrival of Stamford Raffles.
Named for the Javanese warrior said to have founded Kampong Punggol, Masjid Wak Sumang was demolished in 1995 to make way for developments in the area, though it lives on in the name of an LRT station as well as several roads in the Punggol area.
