Oil rich Sultanate of Brunei is a country in Borneo home to one of the richest men in the world where Being Bandar Seri Begawan is its capital and pretty much only city. The mosque of Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin was completed in 1958 and is a perfect example of modern Islamic architechture. We were allowed to walk in and learned that is is only for prayers, has columns made of marble and the main dome is covered in pure gold- speaking about wealth! It dominates the city’s landscape and is not to be missed when visitting the city!

What is the most impressive mosque you have visited? Where is it? Remember to share this picture/post!
