Trip Planner: Asia / Malaysia / Wilayah Persekutuan / Kuala Lumpur / National Mosque (Masjid Negara)
Admire the artistry and spirituality of National Mosque (Masjid Negara), a center of Islamic life in the country. Completed in 1965, the mosque's 73 m (240 ft) minaret and 16-point star roof display modern and dynamic design principles, creating a striking focal point among well-maintained, sprawling gardens. With a capacity of 15,000 people, the scale of the interior impresses, and the simplicity of the design helps to create a calm, soothing atmosphere. Onsite volunteers can provide information and help answer any questions. Appropriate attire is required, but you can borrow it at the entrance if necessary. Note that the mosque welcomes visitors of all nations and faiths, but visiting times for non-Muslims are specific, so check the website to confirm before you go.

National Mosque (Masjid Negara) Reviews
It is not hard to find mosque in Malaysia and this one is definitely a big one. Have to pay attention to the opening hours for tourists. It provides cloth rental and it was beautiful. more »
ピンクとブルーの両モスクはクアラルンプール市内から離れた場所にありますが、国立モスクは街の中心にあるので訪問しやすいです。 国立モスクの開館時間は9：00ですが、礼拝時間は立ち入ることができません。メインプレイホールはステンドグラスや柱の装飾がとても美しいです。但し、非ムスリムは入れません。 モスク内では露出の多い服装は禁じられています。 女性はアバヤやヒジャブ（ムスリム用のスカーフ）をかぶって身... more »Both pink and blue mosques are located far from Kuala Lumpur, but the National Mosque is located in the heart of the city, so it's easy to visit. The National Mosque is open at 9:00 a.m., but worship hours are not allowed. The main play hall is very beautiful with stained glass and pillar decoration. However, non-Muslims are not allowed. High-exposure clothing is not allowed in mosques. Women need to wear abayas and hijabs to hide their bodies and hair, but there is no need to prepare in advance as they can rent robes for travelers. On the other hand, as a commemoration of the trip, a photograph in a robe in the mosque (cosplay?) I think that it will be entertained. It might be interesting as a memory of the trip to be taken to the extent that it is not too noisy. I'm putting up with some heat.
Beautiful and HUGE mosque, however the fountains were all empty of water. Furthermore the wall clocks weren't working and some of the taps in the ablution area also seem to have been malfunctioning. But I was really amazed by the size of the mosque and the beautiful architecture it possessed. Also had praying and ablution areas for the ladies.
Beautiful mosque. It's called the national mosque but the locals call is Negara mosque. It's beautiful architecture, its. Mostly open space. Free to enter, remember to remove your shoes, take them with you so you can leave via another exit. Robes are provided for free. You can't enter the main prayer hall unless you want to pray (Muslims). Worth a visit.
