Masjid Nagara or National Mosque have an interesting and huge building. They have some pools with some mini fountain in the enter gate which make a refreshing view for the visitor. But be careful when the rain drops, it makes the floor become slippery. This mosque allow non Muslim people to visit and look around the building but they have... More

This is a huge mosque and a must see whilst in KL. We went on a hot & humid day in the morning during a weekday. Women must be covered incl. hair. We had to wait a while for the long robes cos there were so many visitors. The building is beautiful and the fountains and the courtyard are lovely.... More

We couldn't go in at the time we arrived as it was prayer time (12-3), so check before you set off! A very interesting looking building from the outside. If you are planning on going in make sure you cover your shoulders and knees ladies.

We didn't have mighty high hopes for our visit to the Mosque but were taken aback by the peacefulness and ease of self experienced while visiting. The entry had suitable clothing to borrow during our visit and then we were given free reign to roam around the buildings. A great way to spend an hour if you're in the area.

Beautiful architecture. Peaceful atmosphere. Great experience for Muslims to pray there. Non Muslims are not allowed in the main hall, but can look through the doors.

A beautiful mosque, very picturesque. I really loved the garden and fountains around it. Non-muslims/tourists are admitted at certain hours, there is a schedule at the entrance. You are required to wear the clothes they provide that cover you up completely, body and head. Not sure about men, but women definitely must. It's not far from the bird park/butterfly park/orchid...
