This impressive mosque is located at Jalan Timur. It was built by the British and presented to Sultan Sulaiman in the early 19th century. Set amidst a beautifully landscaped garden, the building displays an interesting blend of British Imperial, Moorish and Arabic architecture.

Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia

Established in 1998, the Islamic Arts Museum Malaysia is an attractive blend of modern architecture and traditional Islamic design. This gleaming white structure stands imposingly just next to the National Mosque and behind the Malayan Railway administration building. Housed within the center is an impressive collection of Islamic art objects from Malaysia as well as other Islamic countries. There is also a library and research facility for public use. Also, enroll in one of their many educative programs to know the regional art and culture.

Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Mosque

One of the largest mosques in Southeast Asia, this impressive building is frequently referred to as "The Blue Mosque." It is huge and magnificent, with an enormous dark blue dome and four majestic minarets that soar over Selangor's picturesque skyline from an impressive elevation of 466.8 feet (142.28 meters). Decorative Islamic calligraphy enhances the dome and the main prayer hall, while the overall architecture integrates ethnic Malay design elements and Modernist patterns. The mosque is adjoined by a small yet beautiful lake, which makes it a particularly serene setting, especially at sunset. The mosque's highly-intricate decorative Khat calligraphy can be best witnessed near its elaborate doorways, walls and windows. Visitors are expected to dress according to the Islamic dress code. Suitable attire is provided at the main entrance.

Batu Caves

The Batu Caves are one of the holiest Hindu shrines in Malaysia. The Caves are popular not only for being the southernmost limestone outcrop in the Northern Hemisphere, but the labyrinth that makes up the Batu Caves also supports a variety of native wildlife. There is a 272-step concrete staircase leading to the temple cave. The main cave holds a shrine of Lord Subramaniam, a Hindu deity. A cave gallery is located at the foot of the caves featuring clay figurines and wall paintings depicting scenes and figures from Hindu mythology. During the festival of Thaipusam dedicated to Lord Murugan and celebrated on a full moon night, the caves are flooded with worshippers paying their respects in their festive best.

National Mosque of Malaysia

A lone minaret, replete with a filigreed form and a sharp spire, shines through Kuala Lumpur's dazzling skyline, its silhouette backdropped by a star-shaped concrete roof. Together, they make up the spectacular grandeur of Malaysia's National Mosque. The mosque is more than just a religious monument, built primarily as the enduring marker of a newly-freed nation. Soon after Malaysia gained independence from the British in 1957, plans were drawn up to solemnize this event with a landmark that would eternally express the nation's liberation. The mosque was thus announced and was completed in 1965. The mosque, a stunningly modern structure stands out from its global counterparts, with its 73-meter (204 feet) high minaret and it's 16-point star roof mirrors the beauty of the tropics. However, at the heart of this modern religious landmark lies a traditional spirit, represented by Islamic motifs and calligraphy that trace the surface of the mosque.

National Visual Arts Gallery (Malaysia)

Since its establishment in 1958, the gallery shifted thrice before it finally settled into its own purpose-built premises. Located in the beautiful neighborhood of Lake Titiwangsa, it exhibits work by Malaysian artists. The building's unique structure, combining a blend of slate, tinted glass and a striking metallic roof, houses five galleries including a creative gallery and workshop, a resource center, an auditorium and the gallery's administrative center. Its collection now numbers over 2,500 pieces. The gallery holds a variety of exhibitions and educational programs. It also organizes traveling exhibitions of Malaysian artists.
