Malaysia Most Iconic Mosque: Masjid Putra Putrajaya

Pink-domed and adorned with intricate details, the Putra Mosque of Malaysia has become the country's top attraction due to its astounding architecture and peerless elegance. This relatively new mosque was erected in 1997 and took two years to complete. It is strategically located in adjacent to the Putrajaya Lake, the Prime Minister’s office and the Putra square - all which bear an equal significance to the country.

Malaysia Most Iconic Mosque: Masjid Putra Putrajaya

The Putra Mosque is an exemplary showcase of the evolution of mosque architecture in Malaysia. As a multicultural and multi-confessional country where 61.3 percent of the population practices Islam, most mosques here are an artistic incorporation of traditional Islamic elements inspired by age-long architectural mosque designs, providently refined with bold touches of novelty.

The Putra Mosque, in particular, is modelled after the Persian Islamic architecture specifically of the Safavid period, combined with the aesthetics of Arabic motifs. This can immediately be observed the moment one arrives at the mosque, where its grand arch entrance is emblazoned with khat or Islamic calligraphy that bears the very same hallmarks of ancient Persian gates.

Putra Mosque Architecture

Impressive and majestic, the Putra Mosque is constructed using rose-tinted granite. The basement walls are built to resemble that of King Hassan Mosque in Morocco. It is incredibly spacious - having enough room to accommodate up to 15,000 worshipers.

The minaret of the Putra Mosque is 116 meters tall and carries heavy influence of Baghdad’s Sheikh Omar Mosque. Its overall mesmerising pink hue is complemented with the scrupulous woodwork on all of its windows and doors. In terms of structure, the modern mosque consists of three major functional areas: a prayer hall, a courtyard and a learning facility.
