There are several fountains on the ground as well.

The mosque features an open floor plan, similar to many other mosques.

Massage Chairs

Perhaps the most interesting feature are the 8 massage chairs located on the ground. This is the first time that I have even seen this in any religious building.

You can take a tour for free, and appropriate clothing is provided should you not be dressed properly at the time of your visit.

The mosque is not located too far from Merdeka Square, so it is easily accessible.
