This amazing structure is an eye candy specially at night.
Air Asia flight is fast and smooth. From KK It took us only 20 minutes to reach Brunei. I was not done filling up the immigration form when we landed. Ha ha ha!
The mosque is classified as one of the most spectacular mosques in the Asia Pacific and a major tourist attraction.Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque is considered amongst the people of Brunei as the country’s major landmark.
Amazing in appearance, the Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque is Brunei’s proudest architectural achievement. It sits on an artificial lagoon near the Brunei River in Kampong Ayer which is, appropriately enough, known as a “water village.” A structure in the water that resembles a ship was at one time used for official state ceremonies.
The mosque is the largest in the Far East, and considered among the most beautiful in the world. It reaches a height of 52 meters and is topped with a gold dome supported by walls of Italian marble, which also forms the mosque’s columns, arches, and towers. The stained glass was hand made in England and the carpets are Saudi Arabian.
We were not able to enter the mosque because it was RAMADAN when we went to Brunei. Nonetheless, I super love my shots! Nagbuhat sariling mesa, naman! Pasensya na ganun siguro pag mag isa palagi, nagiging delusional. I almost got hit by a car when I was taking these photos. Tsk, tsk. The things you’ll do for the love of photography! Ha ha ha! Enjoy Brunei!
