List of Mosques in Brunei Darussalam

Last Updated: September 15, 2016
I'm a Catholic but that doesn't mean I don't admire other religious sites. And that doesn't mean either that I can't visit their house of worships or prayers. I just keep in mind to follow their rules and restrictions, be polite and respect their belief. Their belief is different than mine but we only have one purpose, to worship the God we believed in.

When we visited Brunei, we were able to visit a couple of mosques, just unfortunate we were not allowed to enter because there's an event at that time. If you are curious about their mosques, below is the list in chronological order based on the year they were built. Please note that most of the mosques have limited information.
