Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque
With it soaring minarets and golden dome, the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque is an oasis of tranquillity within the bustle of downtown Bandar. Completed in 1958, it is built of Italian marble, gold mosaic and English stained glass, but with craftsmanship that reflects classical Islamic architecture.
Beside the mosque and anchored in a lagoon is a replica of a 16th-century mahligai, or royal barge, where religious ceremonies such as Holy Quran readings were staged during the 1960s and early 1970s.

An excellent architectural shot, Siu. Perfectly framed with the path leading us towards the mosque. The colours are beautiful, especially like the golden domes. Well done.

Very nice POV. The path leading the eyes. The colour and contrast are good. When did you take this photo ? In the morning or evening ? I guess in the morning because no people around the area.

This is picture-postcard style. I like the lines of the pathway leading up to the mosque, the colours and the contrasts.

An excellent shot of this mosque! I like the colours and the composition. The bridge turning to the right makes the photo more dynamic.
