One of the most outstanding pieces of architecture in Sabah is none other than the State Mosque. With its majestic dome and stunning gold inlay motifs, the mosque sits a stone’s throw away from the city centre. It is a unique combination of prevailing Islamic architecture and contemporary design.

Sabah State Mosque

沙巴州立清真寺就在我住的客栈附近。我自然不能错过这个机会去看看。很多当地华人都没有进去过,因为他们想当然的认为不是穆斯林不可以进。但其实只要不是在宗教活动进行期间,大家都可进去参观。理论上,需要向正门的门卫报道。但我误走了侧门,也没问题。我问可不可以拍照,答案是肯定的。女性注意需要穿袍子,戴头巾。所有游客需要先脱鞋再进入,并且保持肃静。
