Can't miss the huge golden dome and 4 minarets. Best to go Monday-Wednesday between 8:00-12:00. (Out side of Prayer times). You have to take your shoes off and women are given a gown to wear.

This is a great sight to behold, epic in scale and palacial in all the fountains and gardens, worth a trip while in Brunei. Also very nice to see at night, looking otherworldly all lit up. It's all free.

Outside less impressive building than the father' s one, but the praying room was amazing. The austrian chandelier and the entire set up. Simply great. We saw the sultan's access to the Mosque. Don' t try to come on thursday or friday - praying Days.

Beautiful and epic Mosque. I arrived at a non-prayer time, so the staff were very friendly and welcoming to let me walk around and enter the main room. They supply robe cover if you need it.

Very Clean !!! Breath-taking !!! Classic !!! Elegant !!! Although it is made of plenty of gold and marble, you won't sense "money" (Upstart) !!! The building itself actually is not that big as I thought. However, when you are there, you can still feel the "power", "force" coming out from the building XD Highly suggest you come here at...

Jame'Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque is the largest but most recent mosque in Bandar Seri. Its beautiful main entrance of blue and white marble stairs and columns is preceded by nice efflorescent gardens and fountains.

This is one mosque that we always pass by anytime of the day. It just stands so magnificent and spectacular. We were able to enter the compound at night and it shone so beautifully.
