National Mosque (Masjid Negara)

The majestic National Mosque, or Masjid Negara, was built in 1965 as a symbol of Malaysia’s recently won independence. It is one of South East Asia’s largest and can hold up to 15,000 people.

It is situated in Kuala Lumpur’s Lake Gardens in the center of the city and surrounded by swathes of beautiful gardens near the bird and orchid parks.

It was designed by a group of three architects and the eighteen-pointed star dome is said to represent the thirteen states of Malaysia and the five pillars of Islam. The main dome is covered in thousands of blue and green tiles and there are 48 smaller green domes dotting the courtyard inspired by the grand mosque in Mecca. The 240ft (74m) minaret sounds the call to prayer that can be heard across Chinatown.

Practical Info

Non-Muslims are welcome to visit outside prayer times. You must remove your shoes and if not properly attired women will be lent a robe and headscarf.

The mosque is diagonally across from Kuala Lumpur railway station and there is an underground walkway that goes underneath Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin.
