This study is about, finding the golden ratio in UMS mosque architecture. Data has been obtained from the Department of Development and Maintenance, Universiti Malaysia Sabah. Two methods have been used in this research to find the golden ratio in the UMS mosque which is the geometric construction and numerical analysis. Two techniques have been used in geometric constructions which are partition of line and generating golden rectangle. The geometrical and numerical analysis reveals very clearly that the golden ratio is not been applied in the UMS mosque. The golden ratio did not appear repeatedly in some part of the building measurements. It is not found in the roof plan, the minaret and portal of the mosque. The nonexistence of the golden ratio in some part of VMS mosque indicates that the mosque designed and its structure does not follows the golden ratio proportion. Thus, the mosque is still beautiful physically without the existence of golden ratio. Numerical analysis gives out an accurate result compare to geometric construction.
