This Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque is known locally as “Masjid Besi” or Steel Mosque. This is because the mosque was built using a composition of some 70% of steel while the rest was with concrete and glass. Located at Putrajaya’s Precinct 3 opposite the Palace of Justice, it took five years to build, and was officially launched by the 13th Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin, in June, 2010.
This mosque, the second principal mosque in Putrajaya, Malaysia after Putra Mosque, can accommodate approximately 24,000 people. It is also open to non-Muslims. However, they have to be dressed appropriately. Robes are available for free for visitors who require them.
