  • Beautiful architecture in the mosque and we as tourists are required to follow the rules by wearing a long black dress that was provided made women and running follow the rules fit the established parties in the mosque. The mosque is also surrounded by a small lake and a boat if we enjoy the view from a distance, a combination boat and really beautiful

  • Let's start by saying that Bandar Seri Begawan doesn't have a true Center. This mosque and its square are at the heart of the poor social life of this town. Excellent point to observe the evening a swag of its inhabitants but especially of the large community of immigrants. The mosque is prettier outside than inside. If you don't have any other views you'll be delighted but if you already passed by Abu Dhabi, Damascus, Istanbul or Casablanca will seem a little something. You can't take pictures inside. On Friday, only for the faithful Muslims. Still very interesting.

  • One of the big Mosque in Brunei. It located in Bandar town. This is a Muslim Worship place, but everyone can visit inside. The new Taman (Park) opened near to this Mosque, is very beautiful and one of the best in Brunei. People enjoy walking in the park, jogging, Cycling, Battery bikes and other activities here. Everything available for cheap rent. There are many small stalls selling freshly make local food and drinks, nearby the entrance. A must place to visit in Brunei.
  • Such a beautiful Masjid Masha'Allah. A place of faith & solace. Everyone can go inside without considering colour, race, caste etc. That's beauty of this place.
  • Masha-Allah what are beautiful and big mosque decorated with gold on his dome and it looks very beautiful because the dome are golden and rest of building is white. The scene of Reflection of mosque in water is very beautiful. The Mosque is named after former Sultan of Brunei Omar Ali Saifuddin. And the ship is very beautiful and looks like it is floating in water but it is fixed there there is a way from mosque to go to ship. The mosque is beautiful no matter but it is also very huge it is in the capital of Brunei status Bandar Seri Bhagwan and one of big and beautiful mosque of Brunei
