“Not as intricate as in other parts of the world”
Reviewed 18 October 2013

Not actually floating, but set with a water moat around and has the sea on two sides. The staff make you wear traditional moslem costume before they take you to the mosque, cost was 3 in the local currency for two people.

“Nice Enough”
Reviewed 13 October 2013

The outside is quite beautiful, but going through the trouble to rent clothing to go inside is totally not worth it. Very plain inside.

“Pictureque surroundings”
Reviewed 2 October 2013

The mosque is located in the Likas district and less than 20 minutes from the airport. I found that a good time to view the mosque is in the evening. The man-made lake around the mosque gives a good reflection of the mosque. A good spot to see the mosque with all four towers visible is to leave the driveway leading to the mosque, turn right and walk along the bank alongside the man-made lake. At this position, when we visited in April 2013, we saw the sun setting behind the mosque and the setting sun makes for a nice photo. Better to check the prayer times and avoid it as there would be lots of cars parked outside the mosque as well as in the parking lot, making it too crowded and noisy.
