  • This mosque is absolutely stunning. It's work the trip to it. Grab a bus. I walked along the highway - not the best idea. It's not far from the Brunei mall area. You can get some souvenir shopping done afterwards. Check on the times. The internet and mosque had conflicting times, so ask at your hotel.
  • Such a beautifull architecture all trimming etc worth to see 🕌🕌🕌
  • 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 ;-)
  • This is exactly what we expected from going to Brunei.
  • beautiful and huge mosque well worth the visit
