“it is a beautiful place..”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 21, 2011

breath taking place..u can see it from far because it is located beside the road and it is a very huge mosque. for muslim, u can go there to pray and for non muslim, u can just visit and see the beautiful design of the mosque. don't worry about not wearing hijab or scraf because they will provide u with it. amazing and calm place to go.

“Can take bus route E1 or fast rail to Putrajaya”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 10, 2011

There are lack of clear indication on how can go to Putrajaya region. Actually can take the rail to KLIA from KL Sentral and get off at Putrajaya. Or can take bus route E1 from Pasan Seni bus station. Both can bring you to Putrajaya Sentral. Then change bus or taxi, would be a far more cost effective way.

For the mosque, everything is pink and their cover to borrow is also pink. So very spiritual and nice.

“A good place to visit”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 8, 2009

The mosque is simply magnificent! It can accomodate more than 10,000 people in a single time, and yes, it is open to all, with proper attires-for ladies, not too sexy, and the scarves are provided FOC at the entrance; for man, smart casual and no shorts allowed).

There are dinning and souvenir shops at underground floor besides Putra Mosque (can be accessed through escalotors.

“Not in Selangor”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2008

Not in Selangor, the Putra Mosque is actually in the Federal Territory of Putrajaya.

Facing the scenic Putrajaya Lake, the Putra Mosque is arguably Putrajaya's most distinctive landmark.

Putra Mosque's Islamic-architecture artistically blends traditional designs, local craftsmanship and the use of indigenous materials.

The mosque is modeled after Persian Islamic architecture of the Safavid period with elements derived from other Muslim cultures.
Incorporating Malaysian, Persian and Arab-Islamic architectural designs, the main entrance to the mosque is fashioned in the likeness of public building gates in Muslim Persia.

Its 116-metre minaret is influenced by the design of the Sheikh Omar mosque in Baghdad, while the basement wall of the mosque resembles that of the King Hassan mosque in Casablanca, Morocco.

The mosque is constructed in rose-tinted granite which gives its desert-pink hue that offsets the cengal woodwork on doors, windows and panels.

It is one of the mosques in malaysia that actually allows tourists to visit. Non-muslims will have to wear a robe, which is provided.
