  • Great detail of architecture. thanks to brunei tourism for futuring my shot as well.
  • In terms of architecture, this is totally stunning. It has its own parking area and garden. The place is quite popular among tourists. Beware, just like any other mosques in Brunei, there are limits for photography here as it can distract the people praying here. Being so popular, its rest rooms smell bad compare to Masjid Saifudden and Masjid Ash Shaliheen.
  • 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 🕌🕌🕌
  • Great and modern mosque
