{kuala lumpur} masjid negara

October 16, 2016

I didn’t even know that places had national mosques, but apparently they do. Masjid Negara is the National Mosque of Malaysia, situated in Kuala Lumpur. It was at the top of the list when it came to places I wanted to visit because I knew it was going to be such a unique experience visiting a mosque with a capacity of 15,000 people!

Walking in, women are required to put on a purple robe and black head veil. It was such an interesting experiencing adorning this attire. I thought I would feel more hot wearing all this clothes, but in fact, oddly enough, I didn’t. It was actually kind of nice to wear the long purple robe and walk around in the same way as all the other women in the mosque.

The mosque itself was absolutely stunning featuring all kinds of tile and water decor. What an amazing place to visit. I’m just glad it was open to the public!
