Beautiful, serene, welcoming and did I mention beautiful? There is an area for tourists and an area exclusively for muslims so as not to interfere with prayer, but tours are organised for non-muslims also. A definite must visit, when exploring this beautiful city.

As a non muslim I was very impressed in this experience, one could sense the holiness of the place , all very respectful. I was very interested to learn of the great similarities between Muslim and beliefs and key tenets of the Christian faith .

If you are a foreigner or not a Muslim, you will not be allowed to enter the Mosque, which I am sure must be quite striking because the outside of the Mosque is well worth seeing.

We stopped briefly here on our KL City Sights Tour. It was peaceful and allowed a photo opportunity or two as it is the largest mosque I believe in Malaysia. The architecture alone is worth capturing on film.
