Kota Kinabalu City Mosque, Kota Kinabalu

3.8
#1 of 11 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 water mosque It is not so special, I have not been able to go because it can be short pants, but the relationship between the picture is good place. The sun and the yellow will have a good effect, but must be a good weather first! The water mosque is beautiful.

  • The most famous water mosque should be to shoot the reflection of the mosque, although it is not really built on the water of the mosque, photographed it has been particularly holy, pure. Remember that you must switch to the traditional costume of the Muslims, the side of the store can be rented, but also very special religious experience, to don't can not miss this scene.

  • This mosque is the largest of the Sabah, the game is not a lot of people, we are in the yellow time to see the clouds in the sky, the mosque lined holding the pink sky, particularly beautiful.

  • I studied in UMS before and I went to this mosque a lot. It is very comfortable and the view around the mosque is also very beautiful, hence it became tourist's attraction. But I do hope that the management take care of the upper level's stair since some of them are littered with lizard's droppings.
  • 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.
  • A beautiful Mosque and has good food both local and authentic Hawaiian/American
  • Very spacious. However only the front rows have carpets with the rest being tiled.
  • Great mosque but does not have adequate parking.

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.
