The beautiful white colored Mosque is surrounded by a manmade lagoon. Situated near the sea, this Mosque was officially opened on 2 February 2000 following a proclamation of Kota Kinabalu as city status.

The mosque can hold 12,000 worshippers at once. It was designed to resemble the Prophet’s Mosque in Medina, which is the final resting place of Mohammad.
