  • Large spending money everywhere it is rolled. Guide is on the Garden Bench is a 10 million yen as a marble and just wanted to say. While for non-Muslims, women black costume to lend. Chandeliers in the wedding hall with a surprise! Christianity and the Buddhism is not thought. Hall is not usually worship women men and it puts only at the wedding ceremony. Escalators for the Royal family, royalty and Royal rooms is the exception, but by their all cost going to if anyone said complaint.

  • 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.
