Description

Located within the village of Asy-Syakirin, approximately three kilometres from the town centre, Masjid Asy-Syakirin is Bintulu’s first Divisional Mosque. It was officiated by Sarawak Chief Minister, Tan Sri Datuk Patinggi Dr. Haji Abdul Taib bin Mahmud, in 1987.
The mosque has a unique architecture which is both modern and futuristic. It can be said that this is the first mosque in the country 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.
