This exhibition delves into the significance of Kampong Gelam as an important port town where Muslims from all over the Malay Archipelago would congregate to prepare for the onward steamship passage to Makkah in the late 19th century into the early 1970s. Undangan ke Baitullah adds a Southeast Asian perspective to this annual global movement of Muslims, which for many pilgrims, would be a once-in-a-lifetime journey of faith.
