Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque Reviews
這是汶萊很大的一個清真寺，就位在首都市中心，若住在市中心的話基本上可以步行到達，我們當時沒有進去參觀，僅在外面拍照。 清真寺附近有個小商場，裡面可以吃飯和買飲料，街邊也有小商鋪。 雖然是二月中去旅遊，當天陽光普照，且氣溫依舊偏高，在室外活動要注意別中暑。 more »This is a large mosque in Brunei, in the center of the capital, if you live in the city center can basically walk to reach, we did not go to the audience at that time, only to take pictures outside. There is a small business near the mosque, where you can eat and drink, and there are small merchants pave on the street. Although it is February to travel, when the sun is shining, and the temperature is high, in the outdoor activities should pay attention to not heatstroke.
더운 나라이기도 하긴한데 넓고 그늘질만한 곳이 없어서 개더움 하지만 사진은 인생샷 건질 수 있음 그늘 있는곳에서 바람불면 시원하고 야야산몰 바로 옆에있음 more »It is a hot country, but there is not much shade that is large and shady, but photos can be shot of life in the shade where the wind blows cool and is right next to the mountain Mall of Sanya
This was a place that I had to see but due to the fact it was raining I decided to take a picture and run. Later I realised this was such a beautiful place. This country is so beautiful and the history behind the mosque was eye opening. Next time I get the opportunity to travel back here I will actually try and make it to the mosque and I would advice that if you do travel over there, please make the time to visit the mosque. BEAUTIFUL.
It was very sunny Sunday! The Mosque's golden dome dazzlingly beautiful! Anyone can go in, you just need to wear clothes provided. For none Muslim not nesesary to cover head, but with all respect to Muslim community I advice you to wear, it is also provided. You even allowed to take pictures inside! I was surprised, because not every Mosque you allowed to do so. Very beautiful and unique. Need take of your shoes, or you can use your socks.
