Details

As a well-known landmark, the gleaming dome of Masjid Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah, also known as Shah Alam’s Blue Mosque (Masjid Biru Shah Alam), is often the first thing visitors entering the city notice.

Capable of accommodating up to 24,000 worshipers at any one time, the mosque overlooks the International Islamic Arts Garden Complex (Kompleks Taman Seni Islam Antarabangsa) and a beautifully landscaped park inspired by the Quranic Garden of Paradise.

Design & Architecture

Masjid Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah features a combination of traditional Islamic, West Asian and Malay design elements.

Decorative Islamic calligraphy surrounds the edges of the mosque’s dome, while its main prayer hall exhibits ethnic Malay architectural features.

Sunlight filtering through the mosque’s blue stained glass renders a surreal, bluish ambiance to its interior, instantly evoking a sense of peace and serenity.

The mosque holds the notable distinctions of:

  • being the largest mosque in Malaysia and second largest in Southeast Asia after Jakarta’s Istiqlal Mosque;
  • having the second tallest individual minarets in the world, behind only the Hassan II Mosque in Casablanca, Morocco;
  • having the world’s tallest group of minarets, as the set of four each rise 142.3 meters (460 feet) above ground; and
  • having the largest dome for a religious building in the world, measuring 51.2 meters (167 feet) in diameter and elevated 106.7 meters (350 feet) above ground.
