A lift with access to all levels, a dedicated level for female worshippers, classrooms and a multi-purpose hall are among the new features at the Angullia Mosque after a revamp under the mosque upgrading program of the Islamic Religious Council of Singapore.
The mosque now also has an air-conditioned main prayer hall, as well as a fresh coat of red paint and a modern lattice dome.
In a speech to congregants who had gathered for Friday prayers, Ayoob said worshippers can look forward to new programs to learn about Islam and new services which the mosque will provide.
"We have seen many developments taking place around us, such as new shopping and medical centers, hotels, restaurants and businesses. More and more tourists visit Little India and locals continue to throng Serangoon Road," he said.
