The Masjid As-Syakirin is a mosque very close to KLCC park and the Petronas Towers. Set on a small hill, the mosque is a beautiful example of Malaysian modern architecture blended with traditional Malay and Arab styles. The building and especially the main prayer hall has a very symmetrical design. The pillars each end in an umbrella like capital that form a continuous structure to form the roof. The building is already well lit with an open structure, and this is accentuated by the many translucent green glass domes spread over the roof, capped by a single dome in the centre of the roof that looks a little like an upside down bowl. A pretty building, but don’t go out of the way to see it unless you’re already planning on going to KLCC. It’s a pity that the area surrounding the mosque is being redeveloped. It won’t be long before the pretty roof is hidden from view of the skyscrapers.

I used to pray here regularly about 15 years ago as this was the only mosque in the KLCC area catering to thousands of Muslim male intent on performing their weekly obligation. Praying space was a premium commodity unless praying on the grass is one's cup of tea.

Then major renovation was done about 7-8 years back and it was such a huge relief for all concerned.

After a long hiatus, I came back for Friday prayers as a tourist, not as a time-starved office worker. Hence I have more time and clearer mind to appreciate the architecture, sermon and brotherhood.

Due to massive construction all around the mosque, access to the location is now restricted. Main access would be through a side street next to Wisma Central. There are other ways e.g. through Menara Atlan and small pedestrian ways from KLCC.

Very calming and nice. However, it's under renovation so a bit of dust and closing of sections. However, as it's near KLCC, quite accessible.

If you've overdone the shopping mall and need a bit of sanity, head towards the mosque in the park. The usual entrance from the park is closed off so you have to walk through a construction site. Worth the effort though.

Everyone is welcome regardless of creed, but if you are not a muslim, be mindful of prayer times in case you might not be allowed in. Can't see a major issue even during prayers as the mosque is big and there are ample places to wait. You will be welcomed warmly.

If you need to do wudu, be prepared for steps. There are lots and lots of them going down to the ablution area.

The interior is very ornate and it's very serene inside. Spend a few moments enjoying the tranquility as it will refresh you.

Located in the KLCC Park area, Masjid As-Syakirin is conveniently located for Muslim workers and visitors who are nearby to pay a visit. This mosque also provides a free guided tour for tourist. The main prayer hall is fully air-conditioned.

The mosque is located near the Suria KLCC. The mosque is now grand. However, the surrounding of the mosque is under construction, which makes it a bit noisy. The entrance is spacious and facilitated with an adequate yet sophisticated rooms for cleaning (wudhu) and toilets, also drinks vending machine. There's a free drink for the travellers/visitors as well.
Female and male areas are separated well. Praying area is differed to the entrance, so therefore people can pray calmly and khusu'. Non-moslem visitors are obliged to wear a specific attire (long-loosen-solid clothes and a head-scarf for female, and long pants for male) to enter the mosque. All visitors shall take off their shoes, as we always do in a mosque.

We went there for the dzuhur and ashar prayers (jama' qasar), and have the chance to hear the lecture (ceramah). I think it's a must visit mosque for moslem travellers around the world :)

Masjid As Syakirirn is located near Petronas Towers.

At the time of my visit, there was a lot of construction work being carried out in the vicinity of the mosque. Nevertheless, when you are within the mosque, it is quite peaceful.

It is a nice mosque. The small dome is overshadowed by the high rise buildings around it - including the famous Petronas Towers. The architecture has a modern slant on the Islamic style.

This is a place of worship and you should have the proper respectful attire when you enter it. You have to remove your shoes. Eating and drinking are not allowed within the mosque compound.

It is very busy during Friday prayers.
