“Unique architecture for a unique Kuala Lumpur!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

The building is surrounded by a great spacious area for 'wudu' rituals, some walk-yards.. the space give the mosque an atmosphere of serenity and calmness that only generates inner peace.

For non Muslim visitors, there is a specific schedule of hours for visit, other than that, all the accommodations are provided for visitors. It is more than a simple mosque, it is a big cultural and religious complex that welcomes every human being.

“Beautiful”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2013

It's a great place, but too bad, I came at the wrong time. I was not able to get inside the building. However, its surroundings are simply beautiful :)

“Very impressive”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2013

You definitely should visit the national Mosque on your trip to KL. If you're not properly dressed as a non-muslim, clothing will be provided for you. Unfortunately, the mosque is closed during the prayer times, which are several times a day, but visit it anyways.

“interesting Malaysian architecture”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 3, 2013

very interesting feature, very unique roof, more Malaysian in style than all the more recently built mosques that follow more Arabic architectural style (like Putrajaya mosque)
