History: Tranquerah Mosque

February 14, 2012 0 By melakatour

The Tranquerah Mosque is a Sumatran-style historical mosque with a three-tiered wooden roof or also called ‘bumbung tiga lapis’. It is one of the few mosques with a pagoda instead of a minaret. Alongside it is the tomb of Sultan Hussain Shah, the ruler of the territories of Johore and Singapore in the early 19th century. Sultan Hussain Shah is famous (or perhaps infamous) for agreeing to sell Singapore to Sir Stamford Raffles in 1819.
