National Mosque (Masjid Negara), Kuala Lumpur

4.2
#1 of 17 in Historic Sites in Kuala Lumpur
Admire the artistry and spirituality of National Mosque (Masjid Negara), a center of Islamic life in the country. Completed in 1965, the mosque's 73 m (240 ft) minaret and 16-point star roof display modern and dynamic design principles, creating a striking focal point among well-maintained, sprawling gardens. With a capacity of 15,000 people, the scale of the interior impresses, and the simplicity of the design helps to create a calm, soothing atmosphere. Onsite volunteers can provide information and help answer any questions. Appropriate attire is required, but you can borrow it at the entrance if necessary. Note that the mosque welcomes visitors of all nations and faiths, but visiting times for non-Muslims are specific, so check the website to confirm before you go. National Mosque (Masjid Negara) is just one of the many highlights you can arrange to see using our international travel planner, Kuala Lumpur Edition.

    To visit something you should be somewhat familiar with the matter. This is not the case with me. Thus, I could understand little and feared getting something wrong to make.

    Breaking the tradition of typical mosque with dome. It was a modern approach architecture design. It was modern then and still look modern now. Serene and peaceful even when the surrounding is busy with traffic. Like the pool surrounding the prayer area to give that cool effect.

    Being a tourist out of town, couldn't miss to visit and pray at the national mosque of KL. The mosque is huge and only allows Muslims in the prayer hall, its well air conditioned and really maintained and kept spotless. The architect for the mosque has done an exceptional job with the design. The ablution area is quite a walk from the main prayer hall. Worth a visit when in town.

    The National Mosque. Prayer hall are comfortable.. but distance and access to toilet & ablution not so convinient due to lower ground stairs... No elevator. Prayer hall must access stairs to 1st floor.. no elevators too.
