Have you ever walked into a Mosque before?  Neither had we until we visited Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia on a visa run from Thailand.

We didn’t know that you could visit a Mosque.  But as we were wandering around while exploring KL, we found ourselves standing in front of this beautiful religious building.  We noticed that there were people going into the Mosque, even tourists; however, they had to wear a purple robe to enter.  So we decided to go inside to check it out for ourselves.

The robes were big, and I felt like I was walking into a Star Wars episode, but I was excited to have a peek inside this building.  As we walked up a big staircase we found a tranquil, and beautiful setting.  We could go into some of the buildings, but not into some of the prayer rooms; although we could look inside the prayer rooms and admire the amazing architecture and design details from behind a velvet rope.

From the water features and reflecting pools outside, to the grand columns and intricate carvings and stained glass, our visit to the National Mosque in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia was a beautiful, and honestly a touching experience, that we will not forget.
