We were taken to this mosque by our driver on our return from a shopping trip. Unfortunately we were only able to see the outside due to arriving during prayers. The mosque is very imposing and matches its bigger brother a couple of miles away.

I have seen many mosques but this one has some special quality. It takes 5000 and was built by the current Sultan as a gift for the people. Beautiful fittings and design. Loved the gardens and fountains.

Hello, from the Kianggeh Market (open market) it would be about 15 minutes drive from Jame'Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque. On the other hand the market is about 10 minutes walking distance from the Omar 'Ali Saifuddien Mosque.
