Kota Kinabalu City Mosque (Masjid Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu)
The Kota Kinabalu City Mosque (Masjid Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu) is not only the largest mosque in the city, but also the most visually striking. Surrounded by a lagoon, the building appears to float when viewed from a distance, and casts a picturesque reflection into the water below.

Built in 2000, the Kota Kinabalu City Mosque accommodates up to 12,000 worshipers at a time, and can be entered by non-Muslims outside regular prayer times. The mosque features a classical style with four minarets and a grand blue-and-gold dome, designed to resemble the Nabawi Mosque in Medina, the final resting place of Muhammad.

A visit to the mosque is best enjoyed as part of a half-day city tour of Kota Kinabalu, where you’ll get the chance to explore other cultural landmarks, like the Wisma Tun Mustapha and the Sabah Museum, and view the city sights from Signal Hill.

Insider’s Tip: For a visually stunning experience, visit the Kota Kinabalu City Mosque at night when the building is illuminated over the black waters of Likas Bay. If you can, visit on a full moon night for a view you won't forget.

Practical Info

The Kota Kinabalu City Mosque is located approximately five kilometers north of the city center. To reach it by public transport, take bus 5A from Wawasan Plaza towards UMS and ask the driver to stop outside the City Mosque after the Tanjung Lipat roundabout.
Address: Likas Bay, Kota Kinabalu, Sabah, Malaysia, Malaysia

The Essence of Kota Kinabalu

The Essence of Kota Kinabalu

Sabah’s gateway to Borneo has long been on the radar for those eager seeing more of the natural splendour of Malaysia’s green heart. However, the city has blossomed over the years, where it once did not have a prominent position on the tourism map. Called KK by its residents, Kota Kinabalu has turned into a melting pot of culture, food and a strong affinity towards that what keeps the city such a pleasure to wander through. Its demands to follow in the footsteps of the 21st century are there, but holding tight to its historical values, sights and landmarks makes it an excellent example of old versus new. Turn your Malaysia Borneo exploration complete with our half-day touring the sights, sounds and cultural aspects of one of Malaysia’s thriving travel hubs.
