Kota Kinabalu City Mosque, Kota Kinabalu

3.8
#1 of 8 in Sightseeing in Kota Kinabalu
Religious Site Tourist Spot
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.

  • Water is a typical contemporary Islamic architecture of the mosque, and sunset landscape one of the most magnificent mosque, Malaysia. Here can accommodate up to 12,000 pilgrims pray, the mosque's four minarets and dome is striking and beautiful. Mosque built in likashi Bay on the artificial lake, white buildings reflected in the water, is lined with blue sky, let people blow. Visitors entering the Interior takes 3 RM lease Islam clothing, inside you, don't forget to take off your shoes, pay attention to dress neatly.

  • A beautiful mosque that's peaceful and the people who run it are friendly, compassionate and gentle people. You feel the calm in the temple. It has the happiness and positivity of kids laughing and talking and then the people who are intimately praying. It was a great experience and a wonderful wonderful place. It is an incredibly well organized and spiritual place.
  • Attraction for travellers.. A mosque look like floating in a lagoon.. Popular among tourists from Northern Asia..
  • It was really really stunning. Would probably even more so if during sunset. I visited around 3pm and was not able to see the pink skies but i got the chance to see that wonderful reflection of ths mosque in the waters. There's even a rental of muslim dresses and hijab for non muslims if you want to go inside. It was for MYR5. Very nice experience even though weather is really really humid.
  • One of the most prominent structure in kota kinabalu thats the reason why you have to visit this place
  • A humble manmade structure that contributes to the beauty of Kota Kinabalu's coastline ..

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.
