Admire the artistry and spirituality of National Mosque (Masjid Negara), a center of Islamic life in the country. Completed in 1965, the mosque's 73 m (240 ft) minaret and 16-point star roof display modern and dynamic design principles, creating a striking focal point among well-maintained, sprawling gardens. With a capacity of 15,000 people, the scale of the interior impresses, and the simplicity of the design helps to create a calm, soothing atmosphere. Onsite volunteers can provide information and help answer any questions. Appropriate attire is required, but you can borrow it at the entrance if necessary. Note that the mosque welcomes visitors of all nations and faiths, but visiting times for non-Muslims are specific, so check the website to confirm before you go.

National Mosque (Masjid Negara) Reviews
차이나타운,센트럴마켓과 버드파크,이슬람 예술박물관 사이에 있어 동선이 좋았다 시원스런 파란 지붕이 멋졌고 많은 관광객들이 줄서서 입장하고 있었다 more »The hotel is located in the middle of Chinatown, Central Market, Bird Park and the Islamic Art Museum, and the cool blue roof was nice and many tourists lined up to enter.
Von außen schön anzusehen, habe aber schon schönere Moscheen gesehen. Um die Moschee innen zu besuchen muss man sich nach den Besucherzeiten richten (außerhalb der Gebete), allerdings sind die Warteze... more »From the outside beautiful to look at, but I have already seen more beautiful mosques. In order to visit the mosque inside, one has to depend on the visitor times (outside the prayers), but the waiting times are then eternal (have tried it twice and has taken too long), since only a certain number of coats are provided. The other coats (hanging in the Gaderobe) are for Muslims only. There are beautiful mosques in Malaysia with better organization and no / hardly any waiting time.
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.
