‘Bandar Seri Begawan - The Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque’


A while ago I showed some pictures of the Jame' Asr Hassanal Bolkiah Mosque in Bandar Seri Begawan, the capital of Brunei.
However, the most famous mosque in this small country located on the island of Borneo is the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque.

This mosque was completed in 1958 at a cost of $ 5 million.
It is an example of modern Islamic architecture and was built in an artificial lake near the bank of the Brunei River.
It was designed by an Italian architect, who incorporated Italian styles into the building in addition to Islamic styles.

Here are three attempts to find an original composition.
Today three rather similar compositions.
