Keramat Habib Noh is located at the southern end of the CBD.
The odd thing is, if you look at the map, the ECP seems to avoid the building.
Quoted from SFOGS website:
"During World War 2, bombs mercilessly destroyed the surrounding vicinity as well as the burial ground at Mount Palmer but Keramat Habib Noh remained miraculously untouched! Due to its historical value and wakaf land status, Keramat Habib Noh now stands as a symbolic monument and no form of excavation is literally allowed, or bad luck would befall. Allegedly, it is believed that the original structure design of the East Coast Park expressway (ECP) cuts through the mausoleum but construction works failed mysteriously. If you were to take a closer look today, you will find that the ECP actually bends around Keramat Habib Noh, suggesting that this famous rumour could be true afterall. Drivers who believe in the story never fail to say a prayer for Habib Noh each time they drive by the bend."
I was at Mount Pleasant, when my father wanted to take a look at more bungalows, we ended up driving to the road, only to see the Circle Line site (another suprise) off Jalan Mashhor. Thinking that the road was blocked, we went back. So at home, I searched the street directory, and found a mosque there. Upon googling, I found its info.
