The construction of Masjid Wilayah started in 1996 and was completed in the year 2000 – just in time for the country’s National Day at the turn of a new millennium. The mosque was the brainchild of Tun Dr. Mahathir Mohamed during his tenure as Malaysia’s fourth Prime Minister.
Located just a stone’s throw from the city centre near the MATRADE building and Jalan Duta’s government complex, the mosque was officiated on 18 February 2005 by the Yang Di-Pertuan Agong (King of Malaysia) at that time, Tuanku Syed Sirajudin Ibni Almarhum Tuanku Syed Putra Jamalulail. The mosque is heavily influenced by the Sultan Ahmed Mosque in Turkey, with a combination of traditional Malay and Middle East design elements. Its centrepiece on top of the main prayer hall is made up of not just one, but several domes comprising a main dome on top, half domes underneath it and a number of smaller domes around it. A total of 22 domes adorn the mosque’s rooftop.
More than just a mosque, Masjid Wilayah is also a community, research and educational complex, equipped with a host of facilities such as a meeting room, a seminar room, a library, a multi-purpose hall and accommodation.
