Entering the Masjid Albukhary in Kuala Lumpur

This Mosque is recognisable by its bright blue round patterned dome decorated with Lapis Lazuli and its tall minarets. It was built by Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Albukhary, a local entrepreneur of Yemeni Descent. He was born into an impoverished family and their home did not have a bed, table or chair. 

The Mosque is located on the grounds of the Albukhary Complex that includes a medical centre, community centre, an orphanage and a centre for higher learning.

Entrance

How to get there?

Take the Monorail from KL Sentral and get off at Hang Tuah (SP9) station and then it’s only a 2 minute walk from there.

At the entrance, there will be robes and scarves available for you to wear. The security guard is super friendly and will show you around.

The inside of the prayer hall is beautiful. They were doing work at the time but you can still see the intricate islamic writing on the edge of the dome roof.
