A must visit in Brunei

It represent more than just a religion. Its a architectural master piece on its own. Appropriate dress is recommended for those who wish to visit.

We just went today and really wanted to see it from the inside unfortunately they are only open to tourist during certain hours and outside those hours you are not allowed to enter. Really sad about it. So opening hours for tourist are from 10:00-12:00 and from 14:00-15:00

This might be one of great attraction while you are in Darussalam-Brunei. A beautiful mosque (Masjid), great architectural features & heavy marble cladded columns. The prayer hall has an unsupported doe that made this structure a unique for architectural lovers. It is not allowed to click any photo inside the masjid therefore be careful as you are in a kingdom.... More

Magnificent structure with solid marbles and granites. Specially and comfortably made prayer carpets for all Muslim visitors performing their ritual worshipping. It's a unique mosque on its own, a must visit for any groups of people, societies and communities regardless of any faith or religion.

Brunei has some of the most beautiful mosques in the world. It's one of the most beautiful mosque I have ever seen. It is decorated so beautifully. It's so peace in there. The beauty of the mosque will mesmerise you. One must visit this mosque when you go to Brunei. It's mind refreshing and so soothing to heart.

I enjoyed my visit to this spectacular newer mosque. Beautiful stone, marble and tilework. I found it even more impressive than the older mosque in the center of town (Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque).

I cannot move on with this mosque. Its amazing, beautiful inside and outside. Photograph inside the mosque is not allowed. At night this mosque looks amazing with a golden colour.

Visiting hours for non-Muslims are outside praying hours. If you are wearing shorts or skirts you will be asked to wear the robe provided. No photos allowed inside, you will have to leave your camera in the locker. Enjoy the architecture & the garden outside. Best photo to be taken from the east side.

Another attractive mosque in town but a bit too far for a walk from the city center at the river bank. Worth to come if you find a reliable transport...

A very impressive Mosque, and somewhat new, we took a visit late in the day and it was very busy, surprising that a number of tourists wanting to take photos inside which forbidden and very disrespectful
