"Escape the heat and enjoy wonderful surroundings." National Mosque - Masjid Negara Tip by hennanights


The National Mosque was built in 1964. Since then it has been updated. It truly a beautiful structure and at least 10 degrees cooler than outside, thanks to its tranquil pools of water and the marble floors. The outside prayer area has a blue glass ceiling which reflects creating a glow on the marble floors. You are free to wander the building and should you go the wrong way you are stopped by security guards. I found the experience of walking around the mosque a calming one. The splendor of the deco and design are something very special and unique.
