Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque, the pictures

August 20, 2008
As promised from my earlier post on the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddien Mosque, below are some pictures relating to the mosque. As of today, I saw the scaff-folding around the mosque’s minaret. Sorry didnt have my camera, else I would take a pic. Enjoy…
The construction of the OAS Mosque circa 1957-1958

The construction of the SOAS Mosque circa 1957-1958

This photo's title is Masjid SOAS open air. The open area is of course what the Taman OAS is located. The buildings behind were the shophouses in Jalan Sultan where there's only a row left now. Also note on the vehicles back then. Interesting.

This photo's title says 'Masjid SOAS open air'. I guess it means that the open area (now the Taman OAS) infront of the mosque. The buildings behind were shophouses along Jalan Sultan and Jalan Pemancha. Note the vehicles too. Interesting.

Centrepiece. The most photographed building in Brunei in 1974. Note that most of the villages (Kampong Ayer) around the mosque have dissapeared, mainly due to fire. To your centre right is where the Kompleks Yayasan is now.

As of 6 August 2008. The mosque with its glittering golden dome in the sunlight. And somebody please fix the clock. It was before 8 a.m. when I took this pic. I am an almost daily-commuter in Bandar for many years now; I have never seen the clock showing the correct time.

And somebody please fix the clock. It was before 8 a.m. when I took this pic. I commute almost daily in Bandar; I have never seen the clock showing the correct time.

Happy advance golden anniversary.

Happy advance golden anniversary. May Allah bless Brunei Darussalam, amin.
