A Weekend in Kuala Lumpur


Even though I live just an hour flight away from Kuala Lumpur, I only visited it once before for a short getaway. The city left not much impression on me, and I didn't have any definite plan to come back to the city. However, when E had to fly to KL for a business trip and invited me to join on the weekend, I decided to do just that. 


This time around, a friend of her brought us to places that we would, on our own volition, not visit, due to the distance to the city centre, and lack of knowledge of their existence. We took a half-day trip to Putrajaya and visited 2 mosques there, the Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque, and the Putra Mosque. While the former is a marvel in the modern style, the later boasts intricate design and refinery akin to the middle eastern craftsmanship.

E had to borrow a robe, as it is not possible to enter without covering the hair

The mosque is also known as the Iron Mosque, probably because of the naked steel structure that it showcases

Putra Mosque is located nearby the parliament house, so naturally, we took pictures
