Named after the 28th Sultan of Brunei, the mosque sits at the very heart of Bandar Seri Begawan city. Built in 1958, it is set amid its own lagoon (with a docked ship), surrounded by lush greenery and floral gardens, with its gold dome shining in the bright daylight.

#2 Kampong Ayer

Kampong Ayer, or Water Village, is situated on the Brunei River in Bandar Seri Begawan. All of the Water Village buildings are constructed on stilts and a majority of them are made from timber. It is only the newer buildings that are constructed using stronger materials like cement in order to survive the monsoon storms. The village even has its own schools, mosques, police stations and fire brigade built on stilts. It is the largest water settlement in Southeast Asia with over 39,000 people currently living there.
