Very distinct Mosque unlike typical mosques i've seen

We had seen the mosque while travelling through the city. The mosque looks beautiful and is distinct from some of the mosques I've seen before.

Visited as part of a tour. As a non Muslim, we were efficiently and politely given purple robes before been allowed to enter at a non prayer time. The outside of the building is modern and surrounded by calming water. The inside is modern and not at all ornate.

I was asked to cover up before entering the mosque - fair enough, I had no issues obliging to their requirements. The mosque itself is beautiful with modern architecture and a meaningful umbrella roof. Staff at the Masjid were very friendly and engaged in conversation to explain the significance of the mosque and Islam. I found the structure and stain... More

This mosque houses the cemetery or Hero's Mausoleum of the second and third late prime minister of Malaysia near the side of the mosque, the elegance design and peaceful lush forested background does make it a peaceful escaped from the busy street of Kuala Lumpur

If you've never visited a mosque before, Malaysia is the perfect place to get started. This country has some of the world's most stunning mosques, and this one is quite lovely. What really makes this place special is the large outdoor space/courtyard with the black and gold pillars. It's perfect for lounging around and simply relaxing after a long day... More

We arrived to see a sign saying "closed to non-Muslim tourists" which was frustrating because we had never visited a Mosque before and wanted to see what they were like inside. We were willing to remove our shoes, wear head-coverings and follow all customary regulations but were refused point-blank. It's unfortunate that non Muslims are excluded. What a pity.... I... More

As a part of our city tour, we stopped at the Masjid. Not being religious at all but curious about the Masjid and its importance to Muslims of KL, we were very impressed with the building itself and expanded our knowledge. If you are a non-Muslim woman visiting, you are required to cover your arms and your head. They have... More

The exterior of the building itself does not look like anything special but I recommend making a trip if you have about 1/2 hr. or so. If you're visiting the place as a tourist, the mosque is only open at certain times of the day when prayers aren't in session. All females entering the mosque are required to wear a... More

Nice building, but nothing special. You could join this place with visiting birds park or planetarium, but I can't advise to go there for itself.
