    Masjid ini salah satu landmard di Brunei. Terlihat indah. Tapi masih kurang dari ekspektasiku. Terlihat lebih indah di malam hari. Untuk masuk ke sini harus pakai jubah besar, jadi kalau hanya mau ber...  more »

    If Aladdin could live anywhere in the world, this would be it. The mosque is so beautiful. Unfortunately they were closed to non-Muslims during Ramadan, but I still enjoyed admiring the exterior.

    Good to learn more about architectural design of mosque and religion of this germ country. At night it will be the best shot. There are available for getting in but no photo inside.. Wear proper clothes to get in

    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.
