The Basics

You can go inside the Sabah State Mosque, though a strict code of conduct is rigidly enforced; you must declare their presence and intention to enter the mosque and must do so through the front door only.

Visit the mosque as part of a Kota Kinabalu sightseeing tour, which transport you between top city sights with ease and let you skip the hassle of car hire. Tours typically tick off the Signal Hill Observatory Platform and Sabah State Museum, which offers insight into the history and culture of the region.
