Here are the pics of our new Mosque in Woodlands - Masjid Yusuf Ishak.
Named after the late 1st president of Singapore, it is the 69th Mosque in Singapore. It is (being) built at a budget of $15 million, on a 2,500 sqm site, and accommodates up to 4,200 worshipers. It is considered among the bigger Mosques in Singapore. Construction is set to complete by Dec 2016 (in about a month).
