  • Beautiful building and surrounding area. We were able to do the inside tour, it was a bit shorter than expected. But was able to see inside. Inside and out is a beautiful facility and the area around ...  more »

  • Very unique, beautiful, interesting place to visit! It is good to take guide who will explain how it was built and what significance of this Mosque. Love detailed decorations, mosaic walls, golden chandlers and fountains. There is clothes provided to go in. Also there is locker to keep your belongings. Can take pictures only on ground floor of the Mosque, on upper floors not allowed. It will be closed on Fri for visitors and some other days of the big Muslim holidays. This is first Mosque I visited that have separated praying room for women from men's praying hall.
  • Beautiful, peaceful and the largest national mosque in Brunei and officiated in 1994. The mosque has 29 golden domes and four minarets with height of 58 metres. It is a Turkish architecture. The mosque can accommodate approximately 5,000 people at a time. It opens for visitors except on Friday. For the non-muslim you have to wear decent clothing to enter the mosque and are only allowed to see the mosque beautiful architecture at a the ground level.
