Kota Kinabalu City Mosque, Kota Kinabalu

3.9
#1 of 14 in Historic Sites in Sabah
Imposing and lavish Kota Kinabalu City Mosque seems to float on a manmade lagoon. The design takes inspiration from Nabawi Mosque, the second holiest site in Islam, with one blue and gold dome and four minarets. Take a guided tour of the building to learn more about the history and architecture of the mosque, and about Islam in general. Enjoy a pedal boat ride on the lagoon for a good view of the building from the outside. If you intend on entering the mosque, dress respectfully in clothing that covers your legs, arms, and shoulders. Respect the Islamic tradition by removing your shoes at the entrance.

  • Although the number of mosques visited is not small, but the water mosque in Sabah is also a hopeful one, but when it arrived at noon, the image of the underwater mosque was hard to frame, so there was no real awareness of the water mosque. Some of the friends who want to blend into the local culture, in the vicinity of the entrance to a genuine costume, the interior of the mosque is not particularly large, the carpet area of worship was forbidden for non-Muslims to enter, and there was a simple interview with a group of lovely local girls, and we were also happy to have a picture of the religion, Culture is a good choice for taking pictures.

  • Go when the weather looked better. There are actually lots of prayer to those that entered the city watch. If you can't give it a 5 ringgit rents caught hitchhiking in the backdoor. But do not make the photo taking. So just expect a lot of things to do though, and wish I did with.

  • The entrance fee is set aside as a provision for men's clothes, but for those of you wearing shorts sleeves cotton cloth and 3s. The price is 5 ringgit. Some nice pictures in order to take a little walk along the fence outside the mosque, the mosque is in a pond with a cut can be a fence, please refer to ^^

  • A mosque with lovely view. Clean. Large. Spacious. Quite a spiritual experience to be and pray there.
  • Very beautiful views. The mosque has similar concept with MASJID TERAPUNG mosque in Penang. Lots of tourist from Asia countries (China, Hong Kong and tons of curious Koreans and even Japanese) came here to take pictures. I highly recommend come here at Friday noon. I also shares some booklet about the religion on Korean here.
  • The mosque sits on a 14.83-acre (6.00 ha) site at Pasir Road on the shores of Likas Bay, on the South China Sea. It is partially surrounded by a human-made lagoon; this has given rise to the nickname "The Floating Mosque".It has a maximum capacity of 12,000 worshipers. The mosque features an ATM, three madrasas, a palliative care clinic, and – in a joint project with Universiti Malaysia Sabah – a fish farm.
  • Very good Avery one and any religious can get in here :)
  • Remember to wear appropriate clothing and a headscarf/hijab if you want to enter the mosque.

Where to stay in Kota Kinabalu

In the area of Sepanggar you'll find the main set of hotels, ranging from simple and mid-priced, to the more luxurious with good sea views. Move away from the coast for more space and privacy in resort-style hotels, which offer a range of facilities and comfortable, sometimes quirky rooms and apartments. Farther out still, you'll find backpacker motels, giving easy access to the surrounding natural attractions that, after all, are the primary reason for being here.
