Photographer's Note

This is my second posting of Omar Ali Saifuddin mosque in Bandar Seri Begawan.

The mosque with its pure gold dome, marble minarets and artificial lagoon is linked by a bridge (as seen in the middle right area) across the lagoon to the Kampong Ayer water village. From a distance, and especially at low tide, the water village may look like a slum. It actually enjoys modern amenities including air conditioning, satellite television, internet access, plumbing, and electricity. Some of the residents keep potted plants and chickens. The village has a unique architectural heritage of wooden homes with ornate interiors.
