National Mosque ( Masjid Negara )

National Mosque

The National Mosque was built in 1965 on the site of a church, the Venning Road Brethren Gospel Hall which had stood there since 1922 but appropriated by the Malaysian government. The mosque is a bold and modern approach in reinforced concrete, symbolic of the aspirations of a then newly-independent Malaysia. This contemporary-styled Masjid Negara’s main dome is star-shaped with 18 points: the points represent Malaysia’s 13 states and the five pillars of Islam. The National Mosque is situated just a kilometer away from the popular Lake Gardens Kuala Lumpur.
