The Blue Mosque is the largest mosque in Malaysia and was built from 1982 - 1988. When it was finished the minarets were the tallest in the world at 142m, now they have been surpassed by the Hanssan Il Mosque in Casablanca, Marocco. The height of the dome is 107m.
The mosque is open for visitors. When we were there a volunteer show us around and explained things inside the mosque. Women are given a robe and a scarf during the mosque visit. The tour itself was free. At the end of the tour, we were given a introduction to Islam and its view of how the world was created along with some information material.
