Masjid Putra constructed on a 10-arce site, can accommodate 10,000 worshipers in the main prayer hall and on the first floor. The sahn or courtyard can host up to another 5,000 worshipers during congregation and features decorative water ornamentation surrounded by beautifully constructed colonnades for visitors to find shade and cool off from the intense heat. To the left of the mosque entrance, a 116-metre-high minaret stands majestically in the shape of an eight-pointed star that further highlights the superior Islamic architecture and design. There are also five dividing tiers in the tower reflecting Islam’s five foundations and five daily prayers. Much of the mosque, which has a total altitude equivalet to 21 storeys, is surrounded by water, making it look as if it is floating, further enhancing and expressing its own uniqueness and beauty.
