The National Mosque (Nasjid Negara) in Kuala Lumpur is completed in 1965 (in modern architectural design), is a place of worship for Muslims (Sunni), has a capacity of 15.000 people, the main roof resembles an open umbrella, the minaret has a height of 73 m (the minaret’s cap resembles a closed umbrella, symbolizing the tropics) and has a nice garden around (13 acres= about 53.000 square meters), and it is easily accessible by buses and train (the train station is next to the mosque.
I liked the architecture and its symbolism (with 18 points roof - representing the 13 states of Malaysian confederation and the 5 pillars of Islam), the fountains and gardens, as well as the adjacent Heroes’ Mausoleum (Makan Pahlawan) and I think it is also a nice tourist attraction (visiting at non-prayer times, robes for ladies are available on the spot).

Spiritual place for finding peace and connection with God. Also open for non-Muslims, but with restricted opening hours. Recommend a short stay. 30 min or so is sufficient for non-Muslims.

The light and space is amazing. I was very lucky to attend on a day when there was hardly another soul present and the wide open spaces, light and sense of peace were magical.

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the National Mosque and particularly the friendliness of the volunteers who are on hand to provide information about this beautiful building.

However what caused us some embarrassment was the way a number of visitors reacted to having to wear the full length smocks by laughing and making crude remarks in front of the volunteer staff. Please be respectful or stay away.

We were not able to visit inside the Mosque as we were not there at the right time. However, we enjoyed the peaceful surroundings and nice gardens.

We didn't actually go inside - we turned up at prayer time and were not allowed to enter. At non-prayer times there are strict dress rules - visitors can borrow appropriate wear at the entrance - shoes must be taken off. It was obvious also that the complex was a "tourist site" because there were bus loads of visitors.
