Architecture of Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque

The Iron Mosque 
The stunning masjid reflects the German and Chinese style of architecture. Approximately 70% of the structure s made of steel rendering it a sleek modern metallic look. This earned Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque the reputation of 'The Iron Mosque' of Putrajaya. 

The mosque is very aesthetically designed. The walls have a woven mesh design which looks spectacular. Inside the mosque, there are verses from the Quran engraved on German glass sheets which are placed in a way that light does not reflect on them. This gives the impression of the verses drifting in the air which looks splendid.

The unique cooling system
There is natural air conditioning called “Gas District Cooling” in the mosque. Such a cooling system keeps the building cool even without fans and air conditions switched on. The Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque has been built in a way that makes the structure practically maintenance-free on technological lines.

The mosque without minarets
Unlike other mosques, Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque does not have minarets. This pilgrimage place is huge enough to hold approximately twenty thousand worshippers in one go.
