Description

Part of the Petronas University of Technology complex in Seri Iskandar, Masjid An-Nur was completed in 2005. Its function extends beyond a house of prayer – it is also a house of learning, a place whereby knowledge and wisdom are acquired.

This floating mosque adopts an unconventional modern approach to design, which focuses on comfort and a clean look and feel with minimal distractions. Its design is also geared towards maximising daylight as a source of natural lighting and encouraging natural ventilation, as well as providing ease of access and convenience for visitors. Its main dome is shaped like a bell and resembles that of the Asy-Syakirin Mosque in KLCC. 80 prefabricated mini domes deck the roof of its prayer hall. Its interior is embellished with a combination of concrete, glass, marble and pebbles.
