Gazetted as a national monument in 1979.

The Abdul Gaffoor Mosque in Dunlop Street at the Rochor Canal Road end of ‘Little India’, began as a small simple mosque in 1859. Work on the present mosque began in 1907.

The Abdul Gaffoor Mosque is a short walk away from the Church of Our Lady of Lourdes in Ophir Road and the Kwan Im Temple and the Sri Krishnan Temple in Waterloo Street.
