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."

Nice shot with delicate colours. It reminded me of a Hollywood set.

Ahhh! Another terrific picture of this beautiful place. The symmetry here was very well done and your photo has good balance as a result.

Very nice rich coulours, I really like the architecture. I would try to off center it a bit, but otherwise great photo.

A great postcard image. The colors, clarity and details are very appealing. Good use of the centered framing.

Interesting notes accompanied such great architectural building. You got a good angle to capture and cover the whole elements while adding the beautiful sky into the photo.
Well done, Kenneth.
