Kota Kinabalu City Mosque, Kota Kinabalu
(3.2/5 based on 600+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • Wonderful and very peaceful place to visit. You will be asked to wear the traditional garb to enter the prayer area. It was great to have a very helpful and knowledgeable guide, Anisah. 
  • Was previously floated on water like Mosque is still around and leaving the atmosphere is nice. Note time because it seems you can visit in it by removing the liturgy of the hours.
