This is a tiny review originally from

The National Mosque (Masjid Negara) is an enormous mosque, as befits the capital. Non-Muslims are welcome to visit outside prayer times, though not allowed to enter the main prayer area. It has beautiful reflection pools around the outside, and is a spectacular building, inside and out – they don’t like photos, though, or at least didn’t when I was there. On the other hand, there isn’t really anything to do other than look.

Cover up, National Mosque, Kuala Lumpur


If you want to visit, make sure you dress appropriately. The mosque will provide a robe and headscarf for women if you need to cover your arms, legs and head. They’ll do the same for men, in a fetching shade of lavender.
