Construction started in 1907 and the mosque was to serve the needs of the South Indian muslim community. The Sultan mosque lies in 3 Muscat Street (nearest underground station: Little India). The mosque was originally built between 1824-26 and rebuilt one century later in 1924 in Saracenic style with a golden dome.
