National Mosque (Masjid Negara), Kuala Lumpur

(4/5 based on 1,500+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • 由於來到的時間不合時, 不能進內觀看, 但在外圍觀看, 也感受到這國家清真寺的宏偉, 要是有機會的一定要進內參觀一番 
  • In a matter of hours to explore only the appearance. Expressing the moment to open the umbrella shape of the roof according to the Guide, is the hope for future development. Can accommodate 8,000 people a modern mosque which was completed in 1965, the Spire is also 72 meters in height.

  • This mosque is really clean and well-maintained, didn't get much dust on my feet even though we're required to enter without shoes. It is also especially peaceful when you find yourself surrounded by the calming hum of the evening prayers. Do note the visiting hours as non-muslims are not allowed during certain hours.
  • Very well maintained mosque, very tranquil as well. Good respite from the hustle and bustle of the city.
  • Worth going inside to take a look at the inside. Need to go in bare-feet.
  • Impressive mosque with free entry. Complimentary robe & headscarf is provided for those whose arms/legs aren't covered. You can view inside the main temple but only enter if to pray.
  • Architectureal marvel of modern Era. A peaceful and holistic place
