  • New mosque is little away from where the old mosque, etc. Separated for men and women, only men can be open to the public. Will told me NG is in photography, all valuables in the lockers. During the really gorgeous outside! In the photo to fit the bird's-eye view is too wide. Lol

  • The mosque is very beautiful and is in a good location. The architecture and design are stunning. Lots of things to do nearby like boat riding in Kampong Ayer and shopping at Kuilap.  more »
  • This seems to be a much newer mosque basing it on its design and architecture. It was beautiful and with a grand courtyard in the front. We were able to visit the outsides and you must take your shoes...  more »
