Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque Reviews
Ein unbedingtes muss wenn man in Brunei ist, vorallem da es sonst nicht viel zu sehen gibt. Roben werden kostenlos zur Verfügung gestellt. more »An absolute must when you are in Brunei, especially since there is not much else to see. Robes are provided free of charge.
29代目国王が作った新モスクを先に見たので、初見はゴージャスさにかけてシンプルな印象でしたが、脇に池に映ったモスクはとても美しく、青い空に白が映えて清々しい気持ちになります。 中はあまり冷房が効いておらず、入り口で借りた黒いマントも生地が厚めなので汗をかいてしまいました、、、 お祈りの時間を避けて訪問すること、時間が許せば夜のライトアップをみることをお勧めします。 more »Because I saw the new mosque made by the 29th king first, the first look was a simple impression over the gorgeousness, but the mosque reflected in the pond on the side is very beautiful, and white shines in the blue sky and makes a refreshing feeling. The inside is not very air-conditioned, and the black cloak borrowed at the entrance also sweated because the fabric is thick、、、 It is recommended to visit avoidthe time of prayer, and to see the light up at night if time permits.
This was a place that I had to see but due to the fact it was raining I decided to take a picture and run. Later I realised this was such a beautiful place. This country is so beautiful and the history behind the mosque was eye opening. Next time I get the opportunity to travel back here I will actually try and make it to the mosque and I would advice that if you do travel over there, please make the time to visit the mosque. BEAUTIFUL.
It was very sunny Sunday! The Mosque's golden dome dazzlingly beautiful! Anyone can go in, you just need to wear clothes provided. For none Muslim not nesesary to cover head, but with all respect to Muslim community I advice you to wear, it is also provided. You even allowed to take pictures inside! I was surprised, because not every Mosque you allowed to do so. Very beautiful and unique. Need take of your shoes, or you can use your socks.
