UMS Mosque

Posted at February 11th, 2014 | Categorised in Information

UMS Mosque small

Perched on a hill, within the campus area of Universiti Malaysia Sabah (UMS), is the beautiful UMS Mosque.  Officiated on the 29 November 2002 by the (then) Yang di-Pertua Negeri Sabah, Tun Datuk Seri Panglima Haji Sakaran Dandai, it is one of the biggest mosques in Kota Kinabalu, and can easily be sighted from the Sulaman highway.

Mainly inspired by the designs of mosques in the Middle East, this 3-storey architecture has 1 main dome which is surrounded by 4 smaller domes.  It has separate prayer halls for male and female, administrative offices, lecture halls, and ablution rooms that is complete with washroom and shower.  The Mosque caters to the UMS students and staff as well as the public within its surrounding vicinity.

How to get to the UMS Mosque?

Since the UMS Mosque is situated within the university compound, entrance could be denied by the security personnel at the main gate.  However, if the visit is during the daytime, there should be no problem.  There are a few ways to get there:

  1. By taxi, which would drive you straight into the Mosque’s compound;
  2. By Sepanggar bus, which means you need to alight at the bus stop situated a few metres before the university’s main gate (a few metres after you’ve passed the Federal Complex) and either wait for a UMS bus to take you into the campus or walk uphill to the mosque (probably more than 1km away);
  3. By UMS bus which will take you around the campus and get off at a bus stop situated near the mosque.

While you’re within the campus, why not drop by the Aquarium & Marine Museum as well?
