Brunei: Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque

Today I got my first card from Brunei.

Brunei is a country on Borneo in Southeast Asia bordered by Malaysia. In 1984 became Brunei independent from the United Kingdom. Because of its petroleum and natural gas fields is Brunei one of the richest nations of the World.

The card shows the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque in Brunei's capital Bandar Seri Begawan. The Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque is the largest mosque in Brunei and is considered to be one of the most beautiful in the Asia Pacific. It is influenced by Islamic and Italian styles and was finished in 1958. It also dominates the skyline of Brunei's capital and has become a major tourist attraction.


Stamp:
Definitive (from set of twelve) (issued 23-12-1985)


Thank You very much Matthew!
