Malaysia, being an Islamic country views this mosque as a community center. Various Islamic activities are performed there such a community talks, prayers on Friday afternoon and prayer for the holy month of Ramadhan. Don't worry if you're not a Muslim. Foreign visitor are allowed to enter the mosque before 6PM but females are required to dress moderately according to... More

We decided to swing into the Putrajaya on a 9 Hour Stopover and the Mosque was a pleasant surprise. We strolled throughout the Mosque, admiring the stunning building before us - the views across the river and up to the palace were excellent and the colours of the Mosque itself were incredible The area on the whole was very nice...

Was a bit of a drive from the main city but was totally worth the drive. The beautiful mosque (was being renovated) but still looked stunning. We got very lucky because we got this very smart young boy who spoke very good english and explained about every little design of the mosque telling us exactly which part of the mosque... More

It was my first experience to visit a religious place in which special arrangements were made for tourists. The mosque was an excellent work of art from inside and the outside view of lake was awesome. There was a souvenir shop also.

Being a photographer and having traveled very extensively I had great hopes which were dashed. The layout of minaret, mosque, waterfront, 'car parking' and trees made for a photo nightmare. Armed with 8.5mm, 10-16, 35 and 16-300mm I was flummoxed. Even inside we could not see the interior dome and surround completely. Woman appear to be required to wear a... More

We visited of an evening as Ramadan festivities were ongoing so only saw outside. The folk around were really friendly and the walk at sunset is sensational and a photographers dream. Little tip, getting a taxi was hard but speaking to the local traffic enforcement officers on mopeds about Manchester City resulted in their ringing one for us! If staying... More

We have visited this mosque before and found an open door policy for tourists, with very helpful guides who are happy to answer questions about the building and the religion. We were lucky enough to visit during Ramadam and were invited to participate in Buka Puasa - breaking the fast. The building is traditional in design and with stunning views... More
