I pray here sometimes
I don't pray as often as I should but I still do my prayers from time to time. I don't go here often for Friday Prayers as it is a bit far from my house but I have prayed here before when I was visiting KL. Compared to the mosques I'm used to, this mosque is really huge. But then again, it has to be huge as to accommodate the vast number of muslims in Kuala Lumpur.
The interior design of the mosque gives me peace of mind. There's just something about it that makes me feel so relaxed sitting here. Sometimes, you'll see the Sultan coming here to pray. I actually didn't know this place is a tourist spot as I always come in, pray and leave.
Observe strict dress code
I jumped at the chance to visit the mosque when I found out they allowed non-Muslims to visit during non-prayer times. The National Mosque is another icon in the country and I was interested to find out more about it.
Naturally,there are some guidelines on the website that visitors should read before actually going to the mosque. There were certain dress codes that need to be observed strictly especially for the women. Once that was out of the way, my wife and I were astonished to see how big the mosque looked like on the inside. It was beautifully crafted and is maintained with the best of care by the mosque keepers. We walked around and took photos .
It was a great experience and definitely worth one more visit.
