Not exactly a tourist destination, but a very beautiful mosque in the heart of Kuching. Though a place of religious worship, it's not necessary to be a Muslim to enter the grounds, (but not the mosque itself) though please be respectful and dress decently. Especially breath-taking at night.

What an incredibly cool looking mosque! The bright pink against the gold topped domes brings about a strong hue that is very noticeable from a distance.
* The real name for this mosque is actually the 'Masjid Bahagian'.
I think that it ranked somewhere just as impressive at the Sultan Mosque in Singapore.
A good place to stop and get some great pictures of this cool site!
* From the northernmost point of the waterfront, one will be able to see the mosque from the road.
Walk north alongside the storefronts (Jalan Main Bazaar) and keep going for about eight minutes or so. JMB will then turn into Jalan Gambir but keep moving north.
Finally, you'll come to an intersection and that will be of Jalan Gambir, J Market, and J Power. From this position you will be able to see the mosque up the road just a short ways. Head west up Jalan Market and you will hit it.
There are alternate ways to hit this location though.

This used to be Kuching's main mosque until the new one was built. I have prayed here since I was a kid and the mosque holds many nice memories. The many gold domes makes the mosque look special.

This used to be main mosque in Kuching, until a much larger one was built across the river, which is much further to reach. Located at one end of town, this mosque is easily accessible on foot and is near other attractions.
