National Mosque

The National Mosque of Malaysia, known locally as Masjid Negara, is a magnificent and large structure in Kuala Lumpur. The mosque is capable of accommodating more than 15,000 people at a time and is situated on 53,000 square metres of well-kept gardens. The National Mosque was built in 1965 in a modern design that was meant to reflect the modernisation of Malaysia. Its structures are an interesting mix of architectural styles, while its grounds feature fountains and reflecting pools that are perfect for quiet thought. The main prayer hall is a room surrounded by glass that allows for maximum natural light.

  • Muslim travellers will enjoy visiting Kuala Lumpur on a Friday to attend a service at the National Mosque, where they will find thousands of devoted Muslims in the prayer room.
  • Walk the exterior grounds of the National Mosque to see the stunning 73-metre-high minaret that is the central feature of the mosque and an enduring symbol of Islam in Kuala Lumpur.
  • Take a tour of the National Mosque when it is not in session. A guide will lead you through the different parts of the mosque, explaining different features and their importance.

Kuala Lumpur has a modern public transportation system that makes it easy to get around the city. The easiest way to get to the National Mosque is to use the LRT and get off at the Pasar Seni station, which is just a short walk from the mosque. If you are going to visit the mosque be sure to dress conservatively and remove your shoes before entering. Even though the National Mosque is far more modern than others in Kuala Lumpur, it is still closed to non-believers on service days, so avoid the Friday service unless you are Muslim.
