Visiting Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque

29 09 2015

Frankly speaking and it’s not just me but it is more of a consensus that there is not much to see in Bandar Seri Begawan, the capital city of Brunei, an Islamic Sultanate surrounded by Malaysia.  However, this, built for Omar Ali Saifuddien III, the father of the present Sultan of Brunei, Hassanal Bolkiah, “Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque” is a beautiful and a picturesque building.

I was pleased that non-Muslims were allowed inside (just so that I could take a look inside) and women and men in the same area.
