  Visiting the mosque
by sim1

It's time to take a look inside the mosque. Before entering the mosque you must take of your shoes and woman are asked to dress modestly. As I had no clue I was going to visit Brunei, let alone a mosque, I wasn't properly dressed for the occasion. Eeks! And I wanted so badly to see the interior of this beautiful mosque!

I felt a bit embarrassed about the fact that I wasn't dressed right to enter the mosque and apologized to my guide before hand. But he told me it wasn't a problem at all and that they would have robes that I could lend so I could enter the mosque. Phew, what a relief! So here I am, happily smiling, and enthusiastic to see the mosques interior.

Opening hours:
Sunday to Wednesday: 8am - 12pm, 2pm - 3pm and 5pm - 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.
