Expanded with lush greenery in over 13 acre land and having a capacity to accommodate 15000 people at a time, the Masjid Negara was built on the site of a church in 1965. The mosque is a symbol of the Islamic culture in Malaysia. Designed by UK architect Howard Ashley and Malaysian architect Hishman Albarki and Baharuddin Kasim, it is the main mosque of Malaysia. Earlier, for more than half a century, the Jamek Mosque used to be the main mosque of Malaysia until Masjid Negara came into existence. The mosque has a very modern design with a 73 meter tall minaret. It has a unique umbrella shaped blue roof. Earlier it was named after the first prime minister of Malaysia, but later he rejected the idea and named it Masjid Negara, meaning the national mosque.
