Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque

Mosque in Putrajaya

One of the most striking sights in Putrajaya is metal-domed Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque glinting in the sun. It's Putrajaya's second most important mosque after Putra Mosque, though it's double the size.

Modestly dressed visitors are allowed inside during daylight hours – note the Quranic inscriptions at the entrance and the 13m glass mihrab (indicating the direction of Mecca).

The mosque is the site of a large and colourful Ramadan bazaar every year where you can sample speciality foods in a sprawling collection of white tents.
