35. Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque
Our worry for the missing bag, and the tropical heat, overshadowed the first day in Bandar Seri Begawan. However, we had time for a short walk in the city centre. Our first stop was the Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque, built in 1958 and named after the 28th sultan of Brunei. Although it was open for non-muslims for some hours almost every day, we preferred to stay outside. It was certainly an impressive building.
