Masjid Wilayah Persekutuan or Federal Territory Mosque is one of, if not the, local most beautiful Islamic structures, along with the Islamic Art Museum. The mosque has a wonderful grandeur design of architecture influenced by the Ottoman Empire and traditional Malay elements. It has 22 blue domes that really does resemble one of the buildings on Planet Naboo in Star Wars!

The mosque can acommodate up to 17,000 devotees at a time and aside from being a place for worshipping, it has become an institution for Islamic studies with library and classrooms, social activities with hall for events, meetings, even hostel for people to sleep over. And I like the effect from the surrounding pond/pool that made the 4 stories mosque look as if it’s floating on water!
