Jame'asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque, Kiulap, Brunei

So, you thought my travel post about Brunei is done? You've got it wrong! I still have three or so. For this post, I will be showing you the Jame'asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque in Kiulap, Brunei Darussalam.

"This mosque is the largest mosque in Brunei. It was built to commemorate the 25th anniversary the sultan's reign. It is locally known as the Kiarong mosque. - Wikipedia"

Btw, before we went to the mosque, we ate first at an Indonesian sort of carinderia. Feel free to read the post here.

I should be a travel blogger. <3 Oh well, I have the least amount of money to travel. Maybe soon. But for now, just learn to love my travel posts from way back. :D

And yes! I don't have a photo of myself to show you. Apparently because I cannot let you see a haggard me. lol.

  1. Nice shots! It seems like Brunei has a very rich culture. :) I've never really been in a real mosque before. (Except those replicas that you'll see in a museum) I'm not really sure if I am is allowed to enter, since I belong to other type of religion. :P

  3. Wow wow~! I love the mosque. I am always amused with the Muslims. Even though we Christians have different type of beliefs.. I still find theirs more "devoted" and I do not know why! Enjoy!
