I believe that the Sultan Mosque in Singapore - yes, it is Art Deco influenced, and also, based on the pattern books that were popular in British-ruled India, on *typical* and *correct* Moghul style to be used for *native* buildings....

The original mosque was more of a pyramidal roofed South East Asian typology, similar to what you can see in Melaka.

Unusually, this mosque seems to be the only one that I know of to have TWO equal sized domes - probably a design intention to create a presence from multiple vistas - from Bussorah Street, from North Bridge Road (now sadly blocked by a Huge angsana tree) and from Jalan Pisang.

I hope one day that they will open up one of the Minarets for public to climb up to view.... it must be amazing....
