Brunei: Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque

On Thursday I got three postcards: one from Brunei, one from France and one from Germany.

The card from Brunei shows the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque in 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. Nearly all the material used for the building were imported from abroad. Its main dome is covered in pure gold. The mosque dominates the skyline of Brunei's capital and has become a major tourist attraction.


Stamps:
Definitive (from set of twelve) (issued 09-10-1996)
