Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque Tours

Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque
With colossal domes covered in gold leaf, the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque symbolizes the wealth of Brunei. Adorned with Italian marble, English chandeliers, and Arabian carpets, the lavish mosque—named after the 28th sultan of Brunei, one of the richest men in the world—is visible from almost everywhere in Bandar Seri Begawan.
 
The Basics
The Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque is an integral part of all Bandar Seri Begawan tours, which provide a stress-free introduction to the culture and history of one of the world’s least-visited countries. Lasting from a few hours to a few days, sightseeing tours generally also cover the Royal Regalia Museum and Jame'Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque and include a riverboat ride to the floating villages of Kampong Ayer.

Things to Know Before You Go
  • Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque is a wonderful place for photographers (only the mosque’s exterior may be photographed).
  • Visitors must wear a traditional Muslim robe, available at the mosque, to enter.
  • The mosque is free to enter.

How to Get There

Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque is about a 15-minute walk from the main bus terminal in the center of Bandar Seri Begawan, or you can take a taxi. Many visitors arrive as part of a guided tour of the capital city.

When to Get There
Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque is open daily from morning until evening; however, it is closed to the public during prayer time, which occurs five times daily, and on some days. Your best bet is to visit the mosque in the morning, before 11:30am. At night, when illuminated, the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque is a magical sight.

Must-See Sights in Brunei
Brunei’s diminutive size makes it an easy country to explore in just one or two days. Even in the most limited time in Bandar Seri Begawan, you’ll still have the chance to see the capital’s main attractions. Highlights include the night market and the Jame'Asr Hassanil Bolkiah Mosque, which is at its most majestic during the evening.
