  • This mosque is beautiful inside and out. As a tourist and non-Muslim, I was allowed to put on a free robe to cover my legs (I was wearing shorts) and enter inside the mosque for a look inside. No photos are allowed inside, and you are only able to stand in a specified area. But still, it's beautiful to see inside this ornate house of worship. The outside of the mosque is stunning - and perfect for photo opportunities. I took over a hundred photos from the different angles I could find. There's a "boat" you can walk over to and get some great shots of the mosque as it gets reflected in the water. Before you go (if you want to go inside at least), check the times for visitors, because some parts of the day are exclusively for Muslims who will be having prayer inside.
  • Well organised and beautiful mosque Jazaqallah khair
  • Amazingly incredible. The Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque is the best mosque in the world. Thank you Allah.
  • Beautiful inside and out. Check visiting times and when they are praying. They have long clothes for free on the outside so not strictly necessary to bring any.
  • Assalam o ealaykum
