About the Institution

The Abdul Gafoor Mosque was completed in 1910 on land that originally belonged to the Al-Abrar Mosque, along Dunlop Street. Shaik Abdul Gafoor bin Shaik Hyder was a trader and a trustee of the the Al-Abrar Mosque, and owned several shohouses that he built on the land adjoining the old mosque. Income from these shophouses allowed him to build a new mosque, which is today named after him. Masjid Abdul Gafoor was designated a national monument in 1979.
