The Aga Khan (L) calls on Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong

SINGAPORE: The Imam of world's Shia Ismaili community, the Aga Khan, is in Singapore for a four-day working visit.

The Aga Khan called on President Tony Tan Keng Yam at the Istana on Saturday.

He is the Founder and Chairman of the Aga Khan Development Network, an umbrella organisation of agencies covering various development issues which has operations in different regions including Asia.

The Aga Khan also called on Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong.

The Aga Khan is in Singapore after inaugurating the opening of the "Treasures of the Aga Khan Museum: Architecture in Islamic Arts" exhibition at the Islamic Arts Museum in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.

The exhibition will also be held at the Asian Civilisations Museum in Singapore later this year from July 19 to October 28.

It explores the diverse artistic traditions of Islamic architecture through a showcase of artefacts and artwork from the Aga Khan Museum collection.

The Aga Khan last visited Singapore in 2008 as part of the Golden Jubile celebrations to commemorate the 50th anniversary of his accession.

Rais Wants Malay And Muslim Architects To Promote Islamic Architecture

KUALA LUMPUR, March 30 (Bernama) — Malay and Muslim architects need to promote Islamic architecture in the design and construction of buildings and structures to prevent it from disappearing, swallowed by western influence.

Information, Communications and Culture Minister Datuk Seri Dr Rais Yatim said the country had different architectural backgrounds, with some buildings having local architectural characteristics while others had those of the East and West, but unfortunately more building designs were influenced by western civilisation.

“Hence, the ministry wishes to work with the Aga Khan Foundation in the area of Islamic architecture, to find a way to gather all the elements that can bring us forward.”

Rais said this after opening the ‘Treasures of the Aga Khan Museum: Architecture in Islamic Arts” exhibition at the Islamic Arts Museum, here, Friday. The exhibition runs until June 29.

The exhibits belonging to the Aga Khan Museum based in Toronto, Canada have been taken on a tour of European museums, including the State Hermitage Museum in St. Petersburg, Russia.
“What we need here now is appreciation and recognition for Islamic architecture. If we can have Chinatown and Little India, why can’t we promote Islamic architecture?”
