The Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque in central Bandar Seri Begawan.

In Bandar Seri Begawan, the small captial city of Brunei Darusalam, the whole place is centered on and built around the Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque.  This mosque serves as the religious symbol of the country and one of its most recognizable landmarks.  Its central dome is immediately noticeable from almost anywhere in the city.  And while it is attractive from a distance, it’s much nicer up close.
