Kota Kinabalu CIty Mosque is beautiful. It is situated in a lake. You can walk round and go inside but non muslim ladies will have to hire the appropriate dress to go inside. You will have to take your shoes off as well.Well worth a visit.

It is worth the effort to get to see the mosque but entering is not easy for non muslims. You can get inside but you need to dress as required and this acts as a serious disincentive to do much else other than wander outside. Really only for serious culture vultures.

Picturesque floating mosque. We had our tour guide stop for a moment so we could take pictures. We didn't try to go in or even walk the grounds.

The mosque is ok for sight visiting. Nothing much except the mosque structure looks beautiful and its floating mosque. Not very crowded and not an easy access to this place. I guess you need to have own transport to come to this place as there is no public transport around here as far as i know.

The City Mosque is also called the floating mosque and is 15 minutes from the main city via taxi. The outer structure is very innovative and nicely constructed and a walk along the perimeters will yield awesome pictures especially on sunny days. Going inside men and women need to be conservatively dressed. Long pants is a must and a head... More

The mosque was equipped with good and clean facilities. Quite strategic one stop center that you can have your food at the stall inside the mosque area. The outside prayer area quite smelly.

I went in early in the morning while no tourist was there except me. It was so elegant and nice. I want to a few mosque before, and this one was indeed the most impressive one.

The amount of detail that went into this property is astonishing. Well worth the visit, especially for muslims. Near the waterfront, lush mountains in the background its picturesque. Going inside, its detailed pillars and walls will leave you appreciating architecture and design even more!

From the water surrounding it ... which according to the guide is to help cool the interior to the details and structure. Appropriate attire available for men and women at entrance... also see the state mosque which is in another part of town
