Very empty and cold. To reach this mosque we crossed a bridge over the stinky river. On the reception, they knew that I was from Lebanon and asked me if I am muslim so I said yes and she tried to test me with arabic words and prayers. Toilets are very far because tourists are not allowed to go to... More

We wanted to visit this mosque so we decided to go on a Friday and thought it would be nice to pray Friday prayers there. It's a lovely clean mosque. Bear in mind the mosque is closed for visiting on a Friday during prayer times and re-opens after 3pm. Make sure you were suitable clothes or you can rent a... More

If you like to appreciate architectural beauty and never been to a mosque, then you have to visit this place. They have a dress code. If you are wearing shorts or skirts, they have a burka you can wear. There are specific timings for non Muslims to visit, which you can find online. Taxis are easy to get from there.... More

Great, interesting visit to the national mosque. Impressive infrastructure, friendly guides too. Robes are provided. Plan trip to ensure timings for non-muslims.

Went there for Friday prayer. It's quite a walk from Bird Park KL, about 15-20 minutes walk, because it's on the other side of Bird Park entrance. Its a big, clean, very tidy and very beautiful mosque. I had a very peaceful pray there. Alhamdulillah...

There are definitely mosques that are more interesting architecturally, but if you are in the area it's probably worth a visit. It's most famous feature is it's 90 metre minaret.
