The second main mosque in Kota Kinabalu is 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, 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.
The City Mosque was officially opened on 2nd of February 2000,
following a proclamation of Kota Kinabalu as city status.
