The Masjid Negara or the National Mosque of Malaysia, is located in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia.


It has a capacity of 5000, is situated among five acres (13 hectares) of beautiful gardens. Originally built in 1965, it was recently refurbished, and now features marble floors, reflecting pools, fountains and a 73-meter high minaret, sleek and stylish against the Kuala Lumpur skyline. An underground passage leads to the boldly modern National Mosque located near the railway station, along Jalan Sultan Hishamuddin. Its bright blue jagged rooftop, designed in the shape of an eighteen-pointed star, symbolizing the 14 states of Malaysia and the Five Pillars of Islam. It has the appearance of a partly opened multi-fold umbrella-like roof which symbolizes the aspirations of an independent nation. Its unique modern design embodies a contemporary expression of traditional Islamic art calligraphy and ornamentation. Near the mosque is the Makam Pahlawan (Heroes' Mausoleum).
