The second main mosque in the city is the Kota Kinabalu City Mosque at Likas Bay at the north coastal highway. It is another impressive example of a marvelous architecture, it resembles in some ways the design of the Masjid al-Nabawi mosque (The Prophet´s Mosque) in Medina, in Saudi Arabia. The City Mosque is built on a man-made lagoon, which creates a feeling that the mosque is floating above the water.
The prayer room can accommodate up to 12.000 worshippers at one time and houses also three madrasah (religious schools). The City Mosque was officially opened on 2nd of February 2000, following a proclamation of Kota Kinabalu as city status.

From the mosque we continued to the Atmosphere Revolving Restaurant where we enjoyed a wonderful lunch. Specializes in Pacific Rim cuisine. This spectacular revolving restaurant with a sweeping 360° view of Kota Kinabalu, the South China Sea and the Crocker Range had great ambiance. It was a really modern place and the tables were all laid out with colourful fruit. The seating was cheery as well. We enjoyed the changing view as we ate.
