I received this maxi card as a surprise from the lovely Lim from Malaysia. 🙂

Masjid Wilayah Persekutuan, also known as the Federal Territory Mosque, is one of the major new mosques in the city of Kuala Lumpur. The mosque was constructed between 1998 and 2000. It is situated on a five hectare site near the Government Office Complex along Jalan Duta. The Wilayah Persekutuan (Federal Territory) Mosque was opened to the public on October 25, 2000. It is the 44th mosque built by the Government within the city limits. The mosque can accommodate 17,000 worshippers at any one time. The mosque’s design is a blend of Ottoman and Malay architectural styles, heavily influenced by the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, Turkey. It has 22 domes made from a composite material of glass fibre fabric mixed with epoxy resin to make it durable and light.
