Trip Planner: Malaysia / Sabah / West Coast Division / Kota Kinabalu District / Kota Kinabalu / Kota Kinabalu City Mosque
Imposing and lavish Kota Kinabalu City Mosque seems to float on a manmade lagoon. The design takes inspiration from Nabawi Mosque, the second holiest site in Islam, with one blue and gold dome and four minarets. Take a guided tour of the building to learn more about the history and architecture of the mosque, and about Islam in general. Enjoy a pedal boat ride on the lagoon for a good view of the building from the outside. If you intend on entering the mosque, dress respectfully in clothing that covers your legs, arms, and shoulders. Respect the Islamic tradition by removing your shoes at the entrance.
