Masjid Assyikirin Bintulu
Gratefulness to God

Masjid Assyikirin and Kuan Ying Tong Temple are two of the spiritual building found in Bintulu town.

The mosque has a unique architecture which is both modern and futuristic. This is the first mosque in Malaysia to adopt a thoroughly open concept design, which optimises natural ventilation and lighting. Its flat roof is adorned with a dark blue dome shaped like a half-open umbrella, reminiscent of Masjid Negara. Its whole structure is supported by a spectacular series of arched pillars.

Set within a scenic recreational park, Masjid Asy-Syakirin also organises religious classes and motivational camps from time to time.


A walk up to the mosque is truly a spiritual experience. A man made cascading waterfall adorned by beautifully crafted fountains enhances the tranquillity of the mosque. A structurally modern, uniquely designed and yet maintaining its intrinsic spiritual values, the mosque proper is a reflection of what Bintulu truly is.

Landscaped with beautiful plants and flowers to please the eyes, it was named "Masjid Assyikirin" or Gratefulness to God.
