The Mosque & the Ship;Bandar Seri Begawan, Brunei

It was just a short trip to Brunei a couple of years ago. The capital city Bander Seri Begawan is not that big and it only took us a few hours to wander around. Our first stop was the popular mosque since we were staying at Sheraton Hotel which is just a few blocks away.

Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque, a major landmark in BSB and a popular tourist attraction was Built in 1958. It has a  golden dome that can be seen from almost everywhere in BSB.

The photo below was taken from the other side of the mosque. The colorful ship is called the ceremonial ship. Let me find something about that ship later 🙂
