This Mosque welcomes visitors and provides robes for women to wear. They had a guide that explains the Muslim religion and the Mosque and there are pamphlets in different languages for visitors. It is located downtown in between the tall skyscrapers.

Very beautiful testimony of muslim religion, that mosk is partially open to visitors. Well worth spending few minutes to visit it, and the sorrounding area, crossing the bridge over river.

Set on an Island of the River Klang this fabulous mosque sits proudly. The towers rise majestically and form part of a water redevelopment project. I arrived shortly after 8am but was advised it did not open until 10am contrary to most guide books.

It is true that you do not need a guide, but I would recommend the guided tour. We learned a lot more by doing this. The guide approached us very politely at the entrance. No pressure, no fee, no tip. They just want people... More
