The Sabah State mosque is located at Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman, Sembulan, Kota Kinabalu. This mosque looks majestic with its design that was inspired by the architectures of other mosques such as Al Aqsa in Palestine, the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, Jama Masjid in New Delhi and Lahore. The 215 foot minaret was inspired by Masjid al-Haram in Mecca and Masjid al-Nabawi in Medina. The mosaic gracing its main dome and the 16 smaller domes were imported from Italy and the entire building is covered with marble. Occupying 14.5 acres of land and strategically located between Jalan Mat Salleh and Jalan Sembulan of Kota Kinabalu City, the Mosque can accommodate up to 5,000 worshippers at one time. There is also a special balcony exclusively allocated for Muslim women during prayer time, with room for up to 500.
