  • The mosque is very gorgeous and there is an escalator at the entrance of the royal family. There is a fountain and a large staircase. Upstairs will be the place of prayer. The woman wears a black dress. The mosque seen from the outside was very beautiful and took a lot of pictures. The light up of the night which was seen from the car was also very beautiful. We had a free shuttle to the train. I was wondering if there was a bus to the mall on the way back, but I walked without knowing it well. It is not a distance that cannot walk, but it might be a little spicy in the hot weather.

  • 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.
