Easy to find and a great photo opportunity. You can attend the mosque which is huge but we were enroute to Sandakan. Maybe next time will be able to see inside.

It's huge. The day we visited it was raining outside. I forgot the shop name but they furnished Islamic dress on rent along with umbrella free of cost. For the dress hired it was very minimum charges. The mosque is big inside and iconic in architecture. Up to a certain part one can access for taking pictures. Rest of the... More

Picturesque mosque and amazing architecture. Not much to do here but take photos, but definitely something worth seeing when in KK.

This was the first mosque we had visited & although had dressed well covered we didn't realise we needed to hire traditional outfits to enter. Outfits can be hired for 5 ringgit from a little kiosk out the front. It was actually a good laugh dressing up. The mosque was interesting, but not total wow. They did allow us to... More

A picturesque location the mosque appears to be floating in water, with the sun shining on the white walls the reflection in the water is magnificent. Having worn shorts, I was required to cover up to enter and came out ringing wet from sweat.....wasn't worth it. The outside was by far the high-lite.

The City Mosque, is beautiful and picturesque on the outside, mostly during the sunset but sometimes they don't allow people in if you are not Islamic, but that's fine because there’s nothing much to see there. Just admire the building and the beautiful lake around it, sometimes looks like the mosque is floating on water. If you are at KK... More

Visited the mosque on a whim, as we only had 2 hours before leaving the city. It is lovely, and it had very respectful, kind notices outside the main door about how one needs to be dressed. We were not covered enough, so decided just to view it from the outside, which didn't take very long. There weren't sidewalks around... More
