Hajjah Fatimah Mosque

Gazetted as a national monument in 1973.

The Hajjah Fatimah Mosque was built in 1845-1846. Hajjah Fatimah donated the land and money for building the mosque.

The mosque has a steeple-like minaret that appears to be slanting about 6 degrees from the vertical.

The Hajjah Fatimah Mosque is a short walk away from the famous Sultan Mosque and the historic Malay heritage area of Kampong Glam.
