10 iconic mosques in Malaysia that stand tall and proud this Hari Raya

The architecture of the Federal Territory Mosque is heavily influenced by Istanbul’s famous Blue Mosque.

There are more than 6,300 mosques registered with the Department of Islamic Advancement of Malaysia, or Jakim, in the country (as of 2015), of which over 1,000 are located in Sabah alone.

Some of these mosques are true works of architectural art and design, while others hold great historical values worth retelling over and over again. Here are just a few of them.
