Floating Mosque, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah
Kota Kinabalu’s most iconic building, Masjid Bandaraya or the Floating Mosque, sits elegantly overlooking Likas Bay. An artificial lagoon surrounds the contemporary white mosque reflecting the blue and gold dome. The architect took inspiration from the Prophet’s Mosque in Medina. Visit both during the day to admire its majestic beauty and again after dark to see it bath under the spotlights against the inky darkness of the South China Sea.
