You don't really need to visit the inside of the Mosque, as it is a religious setting much like any other Mosques. What makes this one different is the outside portion with the view of the Mosque above water, and this is more than enough.

Tranquil and peaceful. Worthwhile to see as the architecture is lovely. It is important to respect the prayer times.

I visited the mosque along with my family. I had an opportunity to perform my prayers inside the mosque and is very peaceful place. The place is very nice and the mosque looks like it is floating. It is really wonderful place to visit.

There are far more impressive mosques in Brunei, but the City Mosque is still picturesque from the outside. Worth a quick stop and photo op.

The outside of the mosque is lovely, but we were shooed away and weren't allowed inside wearing Western-style clothing, even if our entire arms, legs, head, and hair were covered. It doesn't seem like the mosque wants to be a tourist attraction.

This is an impressive and strikingly beautiful building, and a great spot for anyone wanting to snap some beautiful sunset photos. We never ventured inside, but still felt that it was worth the visit. Impressive building, beautiful location.

Cannot enter during prayer session. Minimalist inside as per Islamic framework. Much nicer from outside to catch the mosque in different lighting conditions.
