The architectural design is inspired by the 16th Century Ottoman Empire’s architectural design combined with traditional Malay craftsmanships. Merging communal elements to the mosque, it offers an interactive relationship between spiritual elements and the community around it.
The 22 domes roofing the mosque are glazed with decorative blue tiles. Thus, the mosque is dubbed as “the Jewel of Kuala Lumpur”. The mosque is exquisitely decorated with detailed carvings of traditional meandering cloud motives inspired by local floral patterns.
The wooden elements of the interior are made of cengal wood and carefully carved by local master craftsmen from the North-east region of the country, where traditional arts and crafts are still preserved and practised.
Makrana marble, sourced from Agra, Jaipur, and Makrana were used to decorate the main arch and the mihrab. These delicate white stones were carved by the hands of master carvers from India which portrays authentic and detailed motives.
Precious stones in the forms of lapis lazuli, black onyx, malachite, red and golden jasper, mother of pearl, and tiger eye added more sparkles to the already beautiful mosque.
Take a stroll outside the mosque and you will be surrounded by lush greeneries and 7 water fountains filled with river pebbles. The pond offers serenity and a peaceful vibe to the mosque.
All visitors of all religions and beliefs are required to cover up (including wearing a headscarf) upon entering the Mosque as a sign of respect.
