The Putra Mosque is the main mosque of Putrajaya. The building is adjacent to the entrance of Seri Perdana, and both are so pretty, they look like a couple. The architecture of this building is an eclectic mix of various islamic styles. I could identify Moorish, Ottoman, Mamluk and elements of Malay. The latter especially in the minaret. The building is decorated in a distinctive colour of pink, with the various domes in a deeper shade of pink than the rest of the building. It looks pretty up close, but even better from afar, especially on Putra Bridge, where you can see the back of the building and all the different sized domes.

Visitors are welcome to enter the mosque at specific times. I’m guessing it’s outside prayer hours. The mosque advertises the visiting hours. I do think it’s worth seeing the interiors, the main prayer hall has some fantastic Moorish architectural features.

Amazing architecture.

Photographer or not, this location has one of the best spots for sunrise. The reflection of the mosque in the lake against the orange sky reminds us that we should not be counter the number of breathes we take. Instead, we should bask in the moments that takes our breathe away.

If you want to walk around inside the mosque, then ... you will be disappointed. They only allow you to see from the main door to about 10 steps more. The rest is reserved for prayer. You can walk around to see the lake and bridge.

Taking photos inside need to be very respectful, no crazy poses allow.

This is the major attraction of the city along with the Prime Minister's office and river cruise.

Transport: From KL, you can hire a taxi which will take around 30 mins to 1 hour depending on traffic. Taxi will cost around 40 RM for one way journey or you can hire by hour (35-40 RM per hour). The cheapest alternate is taking Bus from Pasar Sani (Bus number E1, from Platform F other side of the lake from Pasar Sani LRT station) which will cost 3.5 RM only. However the buses are regular city services and not luxury ones. Also on weekends the frequency is very low, sometimes have to wait an hour. A mid-range solution would be taking KLIA Transit trains from KL Sentral (9.5 RM) or Bandar Tasik (4.8 RM) to Putra Sentral. In either cases (Bus or train), you should consider an additional Taxi fare (11.5 RM if you take coupon taxi) from the station to the Mosque (or very rare public bus or 2 times tourism bus on weekends only).

What to See: Both interior and outside design are very nice. Also check the veranda like places on the far left and far right of the mosque where you can get a nice view of Putra Bridge and Prime Ministers palace over the lake.

Nearby: The huge and beautiful prime minister's office is just next door to the Mosque. Though they stop public visit inside, you can still take some nice pictures from outside. If you have time, you can take 45 mins River Cruise (50 RM) starts from the Putra Pier near the Mosque.

Take Note: Do not wear shorts etc. to enter the mosque. For woman, if you don't dress up properly (in islamic way), you have to wear a pink gown provided by the Mosque (for free). If you visit the place around noon, better to take an umbrella with you because the humidity and the blazing sun is going to hurt you for sure.

Traveling with Malaysian friends and this was one of the stops, the Putra Mosque.

The building is quite spectacular and is really worth the visit itself but you will learn a lot about their religion by the lovely customer service ladies. The lady I had was extremely informative, I was with her for at least an hour and left with about 6 books on Islam.

The Muslim people did not appear to mind having foreigners there apart from security, they appeared to yell quite a bit!

All women must cover up, appropriate clothing is provided.

On a hot day it is quite unbearable, try to go on a cooler day.

A very interesting place, I certainly gained a lot more respect and knowledge about this particular religion.

It is a little bit out of the way, you can travel there by Taxi, Uber or Bus.

Lovely Pink Mosque. Scenic. detailed structure. Set up is awesome with the view of wawasan bridge. Love the ambiance, clean, peaceful, not to many people. The place is great and offers more amazing spot for photo enthusiast. Food court a bit pricey. Explore more, just beside the Prime Minister office, another selera perdana (food court) is located there. Much cheaper with a nice fountain view and quiet place too. Chicken/beef satay absolutely delicious.

This was a very amazing and interesting place to visit on our SE Asia journey. The area where the mosque is located is also interesting, next to the Prime Ministers Palace. The journey from Port Klang is uninspiring but the end is worth the effort.
