What a great chance to see the insides of this National Mosque. The place is really sacred, so please observe proper dress code and keep silent as to not to cause a disturbance. The nearest LRT station are Kuala Lumpur and/or Pasar Seni stations

This is quite place you can visit on your way to Bird Park. If you are a non-muslim , not advisable to waste your time here. Non-Muslims are not allowed to go inside. Of Course you can take photographs in front of the building.

While visiting the lake and the theater one cannot miss the National Mosque. It is beautiful and splendid and is visible from the roadside also. No wonder it is declared a National Mosque of Malaysia

Usually this shouldn't be a problem as long as using a tripod is not during prayer times (indicated by the call to prayers) and you observe the dress code in the Mosque proper.
