Federal Territory Mosque (Masjid Wilayah Persekutuan)

Federal Territory Mosque

The Federal Territory Mosque (Masjid Wilayah Persekutuan) is an attractive mix of different styles, from both Malaysia, and much further afield. It pays particular homage to the classic Islamic architecture of the Ottoman Empire, most notably the 16th century Blue Mosque in Istanbul. Situated on a verdant hill, it boasts 22 domes of different sizes, and two towering minarets. The mosque, which opened in late 2000, can accommodate up to 17,000 worshipers at once. The mosque’s name comes from Kuala Lumpur’s status as one of Malaysia’s 3 federal territories (Kuala Lumpur, Putrajaya and Labuan).

Address for Federal Territory Mosque: Jalan Duta, 50480 Kuala Lumpur
