Visit the National Mosque, or Masjid Negara in the local language. Built between 1963 and 1965, the idea was to commemorate Malaysia’s independence.
The Mosque has a capacity of 15,000 people and is located on 13 acres of green space and beautiful gardens. Its design is bold and modern, and symbolic of the aspirations of the newly independent country.
Next you’ll see Thean Hou Temple, one of the oldest and largest temples in South East Asia. Located to the southwest of the city, it is a popular tourist attraction. The 6-tiered Buddhist temple is also known as the Temple of the Goddess of Heaven, who is said to protect fishermen. There is also a shrine to Guan Yin, the Goddess of Mercy. Built by KL’s Hainanese community in 1894, it is set on a hill and offers wonderful views of the city.
