“Impressive during the day, amazing at night”
Reviewed 3 June 2014

If you are planning to visit the floating mosque, don't go on Fridays. The mosque is closed for public visit on Fridays.

Please wear long sleeve shirt, long pants/skirts, wear scarf over your head for ladies, proper shoes if you plan to go inside the compound of the mosque. There is a nominal fee for the guided tour.

The reflection on the lake is very impressive. At night, the mosque lit up like blue glass museum. Just amazing.

“Very impressive”
Reviewed 29 May 2014

Being dressed in Muslim attire in itself was a pleasure. Nominal fee is charged and a very interesting guided tour. Try to tie this in with a tour of the other religious buildings in Kota Kinabalu!

“Sabah State Mosque”
Reviewed 17 May 2014

I rate this poor not because of religious issue. Take note that there is no active measure are taken to help visitors to visit the mosque. Some tour company bus just stop by the road side for a few minute, tourist disembark, snap some photo, board the bus and off they go. Some tour bus do get into the compound. However, since the mosque is an active site for Muslim prayer, its difficult. People from all over the world go there. The purpose of this review is not to rate it poor due to religious issue. Please understand that there is much more could be done to improve the selling value of the mosque as a tourist site rather than short drop off. If you feel offended by my review, let me know.
