Malaysia’s fervent Muslim faith is best embodied in the mosque that dominates Selangor State’s skyline: the Sultan Salahuddin Mosque rises above a man-made lake surrounding it, with a soaring blue aluminum dome 350 feet in height. Inside the mosque, congregants’ worship can be enhanced with lighting systems that replicate the a twinkling desert night sky.
Its size allows it to accommodate 16,000 worshippers in one go. The mosque’s size and central location ensures that, on a clear day, the mosque’s dome may be visible from Kuala Lumpur.
The mosque is named after the late Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz, who ordered its construction in the 1970s.
