  • 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.

  • It is a beautiful Mosque. I arrived on a rainy day so it wasn't crowded to say the least. I came back the next day after sunset to watch it light up! Also easy to get to from the bus terminal.
  • Very beautiful mosque, but the inside is smaller than Masjid Jame Asr Hassanal Bolkiah
  • Century old building. Beautiful site, close to Kampung Ayer. Visitors are allowed on certain days of the week. The best view would be from opposite side of the pound.
