NOTE: as the blog title suggests, I mainly write about my travel around Japan, but I will write about my overseas travel in this series.
Following my previous post, I will go around Old Mosque.
Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque, commonly known as Old Mosque, is an Islamic mosque located in Bandar Seri Begawan, the capital of the Sultanate of Brunei. The mosque is named after Omar Ali Saifuddien III, the 30th Sultan of Brunei, and was built in 1958.
Exterior of the mosque.
There was an artificial lagoon in front of the mosque.
A replica of a 16th Century Sultan Bolkiah Mahligai Barge.
It was getting dark.
The light-up has started.
It became dark rapidly around this time.
It was so to speak a magic hour.
Now sun went down completely.
The final shot was an object along a street.
That’s it for the article about Old Mosque in Brunei. Ideally, I would like to take phots with the background of blue skies, but I was not able to do it due to haze 🙁 However, the light-up of the mosque was marvelous and it was really worth seeing.
In the next article, I will write about water village and New Mosque etc. as the second day of Brunei.
