Sabah : KK Floating Mosque/ Blue Mosque 【沙巴游】 亚庇 : 水上清真寺

Kota Kinabalu, Sabah.沙巴, 亚庇。

It was a random day trip to have a visit at our Floating Mosque, bringing relative from abroad to have a city tour in town and it was a brand new experience to see ourselves wearing "Tudung" for the first time. Gosh! 


- Kota Kinabalu City Mosque aka. Blue Mosque/ Floating Mosque -

The actual name for the second main mosque in Kota Kinabalu, Sabah is Kota Kinabalu City Mosque. The citizen and tourists are well known with the name "Blue Mosque" and "Floating Mosque". 

Just to let you know that our first main mosque and also known as the State Mosque is located at Sembulan.

Rented the gown and had a walk in the mosque. Very clean and simple building structure inside the mosque. The above is where the Malay can walk around, it is like their lobby. 

We were lucky to see a young couple getting married, smiled widely for both family. 

The rules that we (the non Muslim) need to follow, we are not allowed to walk at the main hall of the mosque, we only can take photos and walk along the pre set walkway.

 The mosque is open for public daily from 8.00am to 5.00pm, except Friday. Friday is the day when they did their praying and Friday is know as their Holy Day.

That's all for those who wondered how does the internal view of Blue Mosque looks like. Interesting. For your information, wearing the gown and "tudung" was weird and people can't recognise who are we. Completely looks like a Malay.

Additional information, the men will also be renting gown and the "Haji" hat before they can enter into the mosque. Unlike before, men and women who wear modest, covered both hand and leg

Cheers!

Location : Likas Bay


Built on a 2.47 acres site at the Likas bay, the Kota Kinabalu City Mosque is exemplary of the Islamic contemporary architecture. Situated near the sea, this majestic white mosque boasts similar features to the Nabawi Mosque in Medina. This floating mosque has a prayer hall which houses three madrasahs and accommodates from 9, 000 to 12, 000 people at a time.
By far the largest mosque in Kota Kinabalu, the Kota Kinabalu City Mosque is even possibly the most beautiful one in Malaysia – the man-made lagoon which surrounds it gives a serenely gorgeous and dramatic look to the mosque on a full moon night.
The Kota Kinabalu City Mosque is open for public visits daily except Fridays from 8am to 5pm. There are no fees charged on visitors.
