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.

  • 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.
