One of the places you want to come as you step on Brunei. Inside tour is just about 10min tour. The surrounding is worth for photo snaps.

Was going by chance and it was a splendid place with very nice surroundings. What struck me was the cleanliness. There is not much of other activities though. Recommended only for the beautiful architecture.

This mosque is in a beautiful situation, with stunning gardens laid out around it. If it isn’t prayer time you can go inside...robes are supplied to ensure you are suitably covered. Lovely to walk around outside.

The architecture is neat and the commemoration barge is beautiful decorated with the tiniest tile all over. Worth walking around the lovely gardens and seeing it up close if you're in Brunei.

Opening timers from Saturday to Wednesday's are: 8.30am to 12 noon, 1.30pm to 3.00pm and 4.30pm to 5.30pm Good call choosing Saturday. The mosques aren't open for visits on Thursdays and Fridays.
