Hi all, its been a while since my last post i just want to let you know i'm still alive :D

Happy Birthday Bar and Nadia!

Situated at Likas Bay near the sea this mosque has similar features to the Nabawi Mosque in Medina. It is the biggest mosque in Kota Kinabalu and is perhaps one of the most beautiful in Malaysia>

Yesterday last minute outing with Dolly and Beth

Hope this says what I mean ;-)

The Great Saint Martin Church (German: Groß Sankt Martin, mostly Groß St. Martin) is a Romanesque Catholic church in Cologne, Germany. Its foundations (circa 960 AD) rest on remnants of a Roman chapel, built on what was then an island in the Rhine. The church was later transformed into a Benedictine monastery. The current buildings, including a soaring crossing tower that is a landmark of Cologne's Old Town, were erected between 1150-1250. The architecture of its eastern end forms a triconch or trefoil plan, consisting of three apses around the crossing, similar to that at St. Maria im Kapitol. The church was badly damaged in World War II, with restoration work completed in 1985.

The second main mosque in the city is the Kota Kinabalu City Mosque at Likas Bay at the north coastal highway. It is another impressive example of a marvelous architecture., it resembles in some ways the design of the Masjid al-Nabawi mosque (The Prophet´s Mosque) in Medina, in Saudi Arabia. The City Mosque is built on a man-made lagoon, which creates a feeling that the mosque is floating above the water. The prayer room can accommodate up to 12.000 worshippers at one time and houses also three madrasah (religious schools). The City Mosque was officially opened on 2nd of February 2000, following a proclamation of Kota Kinabalu as city status.

 

This wonderful mosque was yet another surprise for me. I had no idea that some of the nicest mosques I've seen will be found on Borneo Island !

Every summer I see these waterlily-bays in many of the 1000s of lakes we have in the region where I live and every time I am blissed-out. Although I have seen them 1000s of times, the view is always as beautiful as the first time. ~

Varje sommar ser jag dessa näckrosvikar i många av de 1000-tals sjöar som finns i regionen där jag bor och varje gång låter jag mig hänföras. Trots att jag sett dem 1000-tals gånger är det alltid en lika vacker syn.

 

Will visit you as soon as I have time. Thanks for your kind comments my friends!

Masjid Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu (Kota Kinabalu City Mosque)was officially opened on February 2nd, 2000 following a proclamation of Kota Kinabalu as city status. It is the second main mosque in Kota Kinabalu, located at Likas Bay, about 10 - 15 minutes drive on the coastal highway.

 

Built with impressive and marvelous architecture closely and immaculately resembles the design of the Masjid al-Nabawi (The Prophet´s Mosque) in Medina, Saudi Arabia. The City Mosque was built on a man-made lagoon, which created an impression to be floating above water, a fine reason in bringing this landmark to be one of the City's main tourism attraction.

Built over a man made lagoon at Likas Bay, the City Mosque is undoubtedly one of the most well known landmarks in the city, and is always frequented by travellers who wish to admire the beauty of its architecture. The mosque, showcasing two domes, one large and the other smaller, along with four minarets in light gold was officially opened back in 2000. This mosque can accommodate over 10 000 worshippers at any given time.

Not many architects have the luxury to reject significant things.

The Masjid Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu is one of the main mosques within the city, built to compliment the older state mosque at Jalan Mat Salleh. It was completed in 1999 (actual date of construction was begun in 1989 but halted due to problems) to commemorate the city's status change and is now regarded as the city's main mosque while the latter is still acknowledged as the state mosque for the whole of Sabah. The mosque was built through land reclamation and is situated along the coastal highway at the midpoint between the city center and the Tun Mustapha Building (Sabah Foundation Building) and is at the entryway to Likas. The mosque commands a great view of Likas Bay in the front with panaromic view of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Islands while large mountain ranges shrouds the background. The mosque is unique in the fact that its architecture incorporates a tidal lagoon that gives the impression that the mosque is afloat as seen from the front, the level of the man made lagoon is controlled through a lock that empties to the tidal flats along the coastal highway.

Sunset at the old Sabah Port pier at Tanjung Lipat. This is the Likas Bay, about 1km from Kota Kinabalu City center. Its shallow waters, with sandy and rocky bed, is popular fishing ground for anglers and shellfish collectors. Not that fertile, it is more for passing the time fishing, rather than fishing for a meal. I have spent many weekend afternoons here too.

 

Historical interest {Excellent information is available on Wikipedia}

In 1882, the British North Borneo Company (BNBC) founded a small settlement on Gaya Island. (In this photo, Gaya Island is not in view, but it is behind the pier.) After a rebellion, the settlement was relocated to a fishing village called 'Api-Api' on the mainland opposite the island. This location was expanded and became a major trading post of North Borneo dealing in rubber, rattan, honey and wax. Later, 'Api-Api" was renamed as Jesselton (after Sir Charles Jessel, Vice Chairman of the Company at the time). It was the main harbour, port and terminus for North Borneo Railway.

 

Jesselton was razed in World War II. It was renamed Api when the Japanese took over. After the war, in 1946, the Company returned Jesselton to the British Crown. When North Borneo together with Sarawak, Singapore and Federation of Malaya formed the Federation of Malaysia in 1963, the state became known as Sabah. Jesselton remained the capital of the state and was renamed Kota Kinabalu on September 30, 1968. It received official city status from the Malaysian government on February 2, 2000. (Until today, Kota Kinabalu continues to called 'Api' by the Chinese community.)

Masjid Bandaraya Kota Kinabalu (Kota Kinabalu City Mosque) was officially opened on February 2nd, 2000. It is one of the the main mosques within the city, built to compliment the older state mosque at Jalan Mat Salleh. The mosque commands a great view of Likas Bay in the front with panaromic view of the Tunku Abdul Rahman Islands while large mountain ranges shrouds the background.

Dawn at Likas Bay. This is adjacent to Kota Kinabalu City, just 2~3 km from city center. From where the shot was taken, the road runs around this bay all the way to the left edge of this photo.

 

The peak to the right of the sun is Mount Kinabalu, located in the Kinabalu National Park, a World Heritage site. This is the tallest mountain in the Malay Archipelago... the tallest mountain in South East Asia. In 1997, a re-survey using satellite technology established the height of the summit at 4,095m (13,435 feet) above sea level.

 

Kinabalu National Park is one of the most important biological sites in the world. The botanical diversity is tremendous... over 800 species of orchids, over 600 species of ferns and the world's richest concentration of nepenthes (pitcher plants). A recent botanical survey estimated that there are 5,000~6,000 plant species in the park.

 

There are also 326 species of birds and 100 species of mammals in the park. I must find the time to spend a few days there. {Excellent information is available on wikipedia}.

This view is slightly to my left and its the view overlooking the Yayasan Sabah Building and this was taken around 7.ooam in the morning.

Built on a 2.47 acres site at the Likas bay, the Kota Kinabalu City Mosque is exemplary of the Islamic contemporary architecture. Situated near the sea, this majestic white mosque boasts similar features to the Nabawi Mosque in Medina. This floating mosque has a prayer hall which houses three madrasahs and accommodates from 9, 000 to 12, 000 people at a time.

 

By far the largest mosque in Kota Kinabalu, the Kota Kinabalu City Mosque is even possibly the most beautiful one in Malaysia – the man-made lagoon which surrounds it gives a serenely gorgeous and dramatic look to the mosque on a full moon night.

 

The Kota Kinabalu City Mosque is open for public visits daily except Fridays from 8am to 5pm. There are no fees charged on visitors.

 

Salam Jumaat & have a good weekend everyone :)

Borneo is well known for its sunsets. This is one of the many self explanatory shots here on Flickr. Taken over the Likas Bay, opposite of the beautiful City Mosque in Kota Kinabalu, of which I'll post some photos later. Have a nice day, particularly if you celebrate Eid al-Fitr.

 

Likas Bay, located some 5 minutes north east of the city centre, is a scenic bay with a distant view of the Crocker Range and Sepangar Bay in the distance, with the shoreline of Universiti Malaysia Sabah visible. Likas Bay is a stop for migratory birds as a large portion of it is mangrove swamps and in fact, the beautiful and long Tun Fuad Stephen Road along this bay was not following the actual shoreline of Likas Bay. The actual shoreline was right behind All Saints Secondary School. It might then take around 3 - 5 minutes by a car to get from one side of the bay to the other. There is a public park here, where locals like to throng during the weekends. All along the seaside, some are seen fishing. The bay is planted with majestic royal palms which line the main highway, and aplenty of coconut trees sway at the seaside. The western end is known as Tanjung Lipat, where one can have a clear view over the old ports and Signal Hill on the other. The most noticeable landmark along this bay is Wisma Perindustrian while there are The Peak & The Peak Vista on Signal Hill.
