Also known as Masjid Wilayah Persekutuan Labuan or the Federal Territory of Labuan Mosque, Masjid Jamek An-Nur is the centerpiece and backbone of the island’s Muslim community.

The mosque’s most distinguishing feature is perhaps its futuristic, sci-fi dome resembling a gigantic shuttlecock from a distance, or spacecraft poised for lift-off.


One of Labuan’s most prominent landmarks, Masjid Labuan’s architecture is a combination of Bruneian-Malay and Turkish architecture.

The two tall, imposing minarets flanking both sides of the majestic structure also act as navigational guides for vessels out in the South China Sea, especially at night.

The mosque’s interior features a contemporary design complete with translucent mirrors and grills to allow for ventilation and natural lighting.

Visitor information

The 4.5 acre mosque is situated near the Gurdwara Sahib Temple. It is easily accessible due to its location in central Labuan.

Masjid Jamek An-Nur is equipped with facilities for public use including three lecture halls, the Perpustakaan Darul Hikmah (Darul Hikmah Library), administrative offices and rest areas for dignitaries.
