Jame'Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque Reviews
日本人が思い描くモスクやイスラムのイメージにかなり近い気がします。青いタイルと金の配色がとても美しく、昼の顔と夜の顔が全く違って見えるのも特徴です。 入場料などなく、入り口で黒いマントを借りれます。中は撮影を控えた方がいい場所もありますが、比較的自由に見学ができました。 モスクは有事の際の避難場所にも使われるようで、このモスクでは3000人が収容可能、かつ自家発電だそうです。 平日の昼間にもお祈り... more »I feel that it is quite close to the image of mosques and Islam that Japanese envision. The color scheme of blue tiles and gold is very beautiful, and it is also characterized by the appearance of the face of the day and the face of the night completely different. There is no entrance fee, and you can rent a black cloak at the entrance. There are some places where it is better to refrain from taking pictures, but I was able to observe them relatively freely. The mosque seems to be used as an evacuation site in the event of an emergency, and it can accommodate 3000 people in this mosque, and it seems to be self-generated power generation. Some people came to pray during the dayons on weekdays, and I felt the cultural differences with Japan firsthand.
跟朋友在會議後日落前走來看這文萊著名的清真寺廟。黃昏的金光加上矅目的金色圓頂，加上藍白的馬賽磚相襯天與雲，加上正門的彎曲對稱設計，的確值得一到。 more »Walk with your friends before sunset to see the famous mosque. The faint gold light, coupled with the golden color of the purpose, coupled with the whiteness of the sky, coupled with the positive song of the song, is worth a visit.
Very unique, beautiful, interesting place to visit! It is good to take guide who will explain how it was built and what significance of this Mosque. Love detailed decorations, mosaic walls, golden chandlers and fountains. There is clothes provided to go in. Also there is locker to keep your belongings. Can take pictures only on ground floor of the Mosque, on upper floors not allowed. It will be closed on Fri for visitors and some other days of the big Muslim holidays. This is first Mosque I visited that have separated praying room for women from men's praying hall.
Beautiful, peaceful and the largest national mosque in Brunei and officiated in 1994. The mosque has 29 golden domes and four minarets with height of 58 metres. It is a Turkish architecture. The mosque can accommodate approximately 5,000 people at a time. It opens for visitors except on Friday. For the non-muslim you have to wear decent clothing to enter the mosque and are only allowed to see the mosque beautiful architecture at a the ground level.
