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.

  • The mosque itself is impressive, but the pond surrounding it is full of raw sewage and smells revolting. The place needs a serious clean-up.  more »
  • Kota suites booked through, and by moving to a detailed description of the Korean Guide and could hear van. This is where the people religiously as a precious place if quietly eclectic. You can take a picture from the photo spot outside.

  • Was the first Islamic buildings. Look is certainly lovely, little expectation too much may have been. He long wore pants for the costumer does not need nice, covers her feet she had to be a costumer. The officials were in? The staff very friendly and the photo was taken. Will induce a photogenic place, tourists are familiar with. Everything in time was honest about 5 minutes. Riding a bus just came back over to the opposite side of the mosque and waited a little bit on the road in the downtown area, so, I went back. 1 bring downtown in the ringgit, so quite economical!

  • Very big and interesting mosque. Its my first time eating fried banana with chili sauce.
  • One of the landmark of the city. Beautifully designed and definitely tourists centre of attraction🤠
  • Very comfortable. The activities provided here is relevant to all muslim. Infaq is the miracle
  • A picturesque place of worship...definitely the best mosque in Sabah, if not the whole country
  • Also known as "Masjid Terapung"(floating mosque) because of the illusion of the mosque floating on top of water when high tide comes in. The beautiful design of the masjid is worth to see during sun rise and sun set. Located at the gulf of Likas. There are shops and stall near by and an atm machine near the entrance. The food is delicious with reasonable price. Tourist are allowed to enter (except during prayers) for a tour but must wear proper attire. Tourist can rent muslim & muslimah fashion attire at the tourist help desk near the main gate.
