On the way back to Bandar Seri Begawan I passed the Sultan of Brunei's Palace. The Sultan has reigned since 1967. His palace is the biggest palace in the world. You can see the gold dome - yes pure gold! It has over 1700 rooms, 5 swimming pools, and has it own fire department.
This is the Sultans' Mosque. It is called Sultan Omar Ali Saifuddin Mosque. The yellow is again pure gold!! Not paint.
