Architecture of Masjid Sultan Ahmad Shah

The first structure and style of Sultan Ahmed Shah Mosque were that of a big dome with a minaret.

In 1992, the mosque was demolished and the new design consisted of four rocket like minarets with a large dome encircled by four smaller domes.

In 1993, the mosque was reconstructed by DZJ Architect and Associates. Sultan Ahmed Shah Mosque was reinaugurated in 1994. The mosque is surrounded by a huge open green area and is built in Ottoman-Moorish Islamic architectural style. The mosque from inside is spacious and has a huge hall which is big enough to accommodate eight thousand people in one shot.
