Selangor State Mosque

State Mosque

Surrounded by the beautiful Shah Alam Lake Gardens, The Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Mosque, one of Shah Alam's most famous figure, is one of the symbols highlighting supremacy of the Islam and Muslim sovereignity in Malaysia.

It is also the largest mosque in Malaysia and one of the largest in South East Asia. It was completed in 1988 and officially opened on the 11th of March of the same year.With its large blue and white dome, it is actually one of the biggest dome in the world.

Selangor State Mosque

The Sultan, representing the religious head in Selangor, followed the sunnah(tradition) practised by the Prophet Muhammad and initiated the construction of this historic building.

After Shah Alam was declared the capital state of Selangor ( Kuala Lumpur became the Federal Territory of Selangor instead) in 1974, the idea to build a mosque to represent Shah Alam sparked. The Sultan wanted the mosque to have a traditional identity. The location has to be right as well, as it needs to be at a quiet and serence place.

Having always been a theme park capable of supplying the entertainment appropriate to every age group and stand of society, Sunway Lagoon Theme Park does still set height regulations on selected faucets of the park for safety purposes. Thus, it is usually the children of the lower primary school age and below who sit out whilst the bigger kids have all the fun.

Selangor Sunway Lagoon

That is what Kalahari Kids is all about. A place that is constructed to specifically give the younger kids something to really dominate and call their own. Fenced in and set apart from the rest of the park, it is a very safe establishment and the kids can have a really peaceful time playing whatever suits their fancy.

Designed to resemble a humble African village in the middle of nowhere, a number of creative techniques have been employed by the experts to ensure that there are enough things in this little playpen to keep the kids busy for hours to come. A selection of water guns and tip buckets line the posts along with some slides. A very large tip bucket at the top of the architecture showers torrents of water down on laughing children like a mini waterfall, whilst a mother hippopotamus and her baby wade in the knee-high pool to accompany them. A lone Masai warrior stands intimidating by the entrance as if to safeguard the children whilst they have fun.
