Brunei Holidays : Jame'Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque in Reviews

Jame'Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque
Jame'Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque is Ranked #1 of 19 Brunei Holidays - tourist attractions in Bandar Seri Begawan in Brunei.

“Very impressive”, The mosque is open to the non muslim public at certain times throughout the day and night. A long black over coat will be supplied at ladies and men if they do not have long pants on. You can only access the main pray room used by the men, the ladies pray room is off limits, however from what we saw through the windows it has nothing on the mens area.The building is spectacular both inside and out, the marble floors, crystal chandeliers, stained glass doom roof and the mosaic tiles that cover the entire exterior of the building. 
You are not permitted to take photos when inside the building, however outside go for it. 
The is an impressive building that stands out in it's surrounds and well worth a visit day or night.

"Spectacular"This is a spectacular Mosque, the wife and other ladies with us just put on the coverall for entry to the Mosque, lovely marble everywhere and absolutely clean, they were cleaning as we walked around, we were allowed entry to the Mosque, info an enclosed area it is all airconditioned, our guide explained all the meanings of the inscriptions and all our questions very satisfactorily as he was of the Muslim Faith, there is a very complete Library downstairs on the Islamic studies in various languages, in all a very awe inspiring building.

 “A must see in Brunei”, We visited this mosque on a tour and being a non-Muslim was amazed by the grandeur of the building both inside and out. We were allowed into the male prayer room which has to be seen to be believed - just amazing and well worth the trip.

 “simply stunning”, Considered as one of the grandest monuments to Islam in the whole region, the magnificent Jame' Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque is the brainchild of His Majesty the Sultan Haji Hassanal Bolkiah Mu'izzaddin Waddaulah and Yang Dipertuan Negara Brunei Darussalam.

Known locally as the Kiarong Mosque as it is situated in Kampong Kiarong, a few kilometres from the capital, it was built to commemorate the 25th anniversary of His Majesty's accession to the throne. The Mosque was officially opened on a Thursday, 14 July,1994.

The fine artistry of the structure's basic design as well as the interiors shows the meticulous attention to details and reveals the depth of the love that inspired the vision to build this splendid symbol of devotion to Islam . The stunning edifice with its artfully landscaped gardens and fountains that add to the serene ambience, is a memorable place to visit and certainly a must for visitors

Visitors may enter the mosque but are asked to remove their shoes before entering and to exercise due consideration for people praying. Women are should cover their heads and dress conservatively.
Visiting Hours:
Sunday to Wednesday: 8am to 12noon, 2pm to 3pm & 5pm to 6pm

The mosque is closed to non-Muslims on Thursdays. It is open on Saturday provided that there is no official function the following day

 “Beautiful!”, This mosque is beautiful, definitely a must see and worth a visit even if you're on a quick transit. You can get great pictures. Unfortunately we weren't allowed to enter at the time due to prayers.

 “Huge, intricate design. Relaxing.”, Picturesque view. With garden, fountains, trees. A very relaxing place. Go tour inside the mosque. Much more to discover inside about their love & respect to the sultan. A must to see. :-)

 “See the mosque twice”, 6 years ago, my wife and me visited the place, today my wife, my daughter and me visited the place again. It was a little pity the mosque was closed since king's birthday in the next day. Because it is also called King's mosque. Non-muslim even could not neither stand on the founded floor, nor getting inside. But tourist still can walk round in the garden.

“Landmark of Bandar Seri Begawan”, This magnificent masjid is very unique as the dome is gold plated with real pieces of gold. A must see for visitor to Brunei. Easily accessible from town or airport. Nice place to perform solat. We really enjoy visiting this masjid as and when we go to town.
