MALAYSIA, Kuala Lumpur – Sited at the scenic calm of Putrajaya Lake, Malaysia’s Putra Mosque stands as one of the most modern mosques in the world. The use of rose-tinted granite imparts a lovely desert rose hue to the holy site, which is modeled after Persian Islamic architecture of the Safavid period. Additionally, designs adapted from Malaysian, Persian and Arab-Islamic architectural styles further delineate its striking beauty.
A stunning showcase of how mosque design is evolving in Malaysia, Putra Mosque features a main entrance fashioned after public building gates that can be found in Muslim Persia. The lovely waterfront compound can accommodate up to 10,000 worshippers, and may also host conferences and symposiums.
