Abdul Gafoor Mosque

Things to do Rochor

This side of Little India was historically the area where the Indian Muslims settled, and the original mosque on this site was founded by Shaik Abdul Gaffoor, a legal clerk in the late 19th century. The current building was a replacement, started in 1907 but not completed until the 1920s. Its architecture is a combination of South Indian, Moorish and Roman styles with a number of unique features such as the sundial in the entrance to the main prayer hall, which is decorated with 25 sunbursts that denote the 25 prophets in calligraphy.
