The City Mosque was officially opened on 2nd of February 2000
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.
