MAGNIFICENT MOSQUE - Kuala Lumpur, Selangor & Putrajaya

 
 

KUALA LUMPUR

 

There are numerous mosques in Kuala Lumpur, each with a different architectural style and identity. Among the most visited and picturesque mosques in the capital city are the National Mosque, the Jamek Mosque, the Wilayah Mosque and the As- Syakirin Mosque.

 

The

National Mosque

 

Locally known as Masjid Negara, is located at Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin.

 

Completed in 1965, the mosque has a unique design that reflects traditional Islamic art, calligraphy and decoration. The main dome takes the shape of an opened umbrella with 18 points representing the 13 states of Malaysia and the five pillars of Islam. Standing prominently against the skyline is the 73-metre high minaret which resembles a closed umbrella. The mosque is situated in the vicinity of several tourist attractions such as the Islamic Arts Museum, KL Lake Gardens, National Monument and the National Planetarium.

 

Jamek Mosque

 

Built in 1909, the Jamek Mosque is the city?s oldest surviving mosque. It occupies a historic location at the confluence of the Gombak and Klang rivers, the birth place of Kuala Lumpur. This mosque was designed by A.B. Hubback, a British Government architect. Famed for its Moorish architecture, the mosque has a main dome flanked by two smaller domes and a prayer hall that opens out to a walled courtyard. Its 26.8-metre minarets rise from the two corners of the courtyard.

 

Wilayah Mosque

 

Though the Wilayah Mosque is one of the newest in Kuala Lumpur, it is fast becoming a popular destination for tourists. The mosque has 23 domes designed after the Ottoman mosque in Turkey. A computerised technique was used to design the ornate outer cladding of the mosque. The main dome, standing at 30 metres in height, features mosaic tiles with floral motifs inspired by Safavid mosques in Isfahan.

 

As-Syakirin Mosque

Locally known as Masjid Negara, is located at Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin.

 

The Kuala Lumpur City Centre (KLCC) is one of the most popular tourist spots in the city. Within this prestigious shopping zone, stands the beautiful As-Syakirin Mosque. Its structure is adorned with delicate and intricate Islamic art, created by skilled craftsmen from Uzbekistan. Against the glittering backdrop of the Petronas Twin Towers, the mosque?s 45-metre minaret and dome create a splendid sight.

 
 
 

PUTRAJAYA

 

 

Since its completion in 1999, the Putra Mosque has been one of the most photographed buildings in the country. Overlooking the scenic Putra Lake, this mosque showcases Persian architecture from the Safavid era. The domes are graced with tiles in shades of pink. The 116-metre high minaret is divided into five levels to represent the five pillars of Islam. Enjoy a lake cruise to take in the beauty of Putra Mosque as well as other buildings in the vicinity. Putrajaya is Malaysia?s administrative hub. It is situated about an hour?s drive from Kuala Lumpur.

 
 
 

SELANGOR

 

Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz

Mosque

 

The majestic Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Mosque is an iconic attraction in Selangor. It is popularly known as ?the Blue Mosque? for its stunning blue exterior. Situated at the heart of Shah Alam, the state capital of Selangor, the mosque is a beautiful sight both by day and night. This mosque is inspired by the Ottoman mosque in Turkey. It boasts one of the world?s biggest domes, measuring 56 metres in diameter. Its minarets are also among the tallest in the world. The mosque?s roof is made of steel with a vitreous enamel finishing.

 

Sultan Alaeddin Mosque

 

Built in 1918, the Sultan Alaeddin Mosque is the oldest in Selangor. It dominates the surrounding countryside with its graceful dome and attractive Moorish architecture. Visitors will be mesmerised by the impeccable wood carving of the mimbar (pulpit). The mosque is located in Kampung Bandar, Kuala Langat.
