Kampong Holland Mosque held its last Friday prayers yesterday. The Mujahidin Mosque, just 1.5km away, is expected to absorb most of its congregants. It is moving because of redevelopment plans for the Holland Village area.
Here are four things you might not have known about the mosque:
1. It has served the Muslim community in Holland Village since 1974
2. The mosque, which is only slightly bigger than a five-room flat, hosts almost 500 congregants during Friday prayers
3. Its lease was to expire on Dec 31, 2013, but it managed to get a four-month extension till this month
4. Mosque chairman Shamsudin Sadan, a retired army captain, was Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong's regimental sergeant major from his officer cadet days.
