  • Beautiful bright colors and patterns from downtown is located a little bit a grand new mosque, also reveals that "take money", and is pretty landscaped garden. You can enter from the second floor in the chapel. Chapel here is quite large, bright lighting and decorations, was quite novel. Located in walk hard. It would be good bus 01 C 15 minutes long was the right time, so go have a spare time.

  • Beautiful mosque inside and outside, but check the opening hours and and praying times before you go and visit. Normally you should be fine between 8-12am and 2-4pm. Be respectful ;-)
  • Jame'asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque, located in Bandar Seri Begawan, is the largest mosque in Brunei.It was built to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the sultan's reign, and opened in 1994. It is known locally as the Kiarong mosque.
  • This beautiful yet quiet and peaceful mosque was built to comemorate the Sultan's 25th years of ruling Brunei. Sunset experience here is very spiritual as Maghrib prayers heard from the minaret.
  • Nice and beautifull peace
  • Wonderful place on the earth. Come and feel it.
