went there for Friday prayers, excellent mosque, very clean, very impressive and colourful main hall. very busy but that would be expected on Friday. really enjoyed going there for Friday prayers. more »
Beautiful and HUGE mosque, however the fountains were all empty of water. Furthermore the wall clocks weren't working and some of the taps in the ablution area also seem to have been malfunctioning. But I was really amazed by the size of the mosque and the beautiful architecture it possessed. Also had praying and ablution areas for the ladies.
Beautiful mosque. It's called the national mosque but the locals call is Negara mosque. It's beautiful architecture, its. Mostly open space. Free to enter, remember to remove your shoes, take them with you so you can leave via another exit. Robes are provided for free. You can't enter the main prayer hall unless you want to pray (Muslims). Worth a visit.
