Photographer's Note

The information below is taken from a website Century travel centre


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."
