You can see the Negeri Sembilan State Mosque from the Lake and Orchid Gardens and what an impressive sight it is. Derived from Modernist and Minangkabau architecture, the mosque is both functional and symbolic.

The roof of  the mosque mimics that of a buffalo horn. It has nine sides which form a huge payong or umbrella, and each funnel measures 100 feet. The minaret, on the other hand, is separated from the main building. It has a round base and six pillars representing the six tenets of Islamic faith. There is no pillar in the prayer hall and the meticulous carvings were all locally made. This mosque is open any time and any day to those who wish to look inside.

It is located at Jalan Datuk Hamzah and was constructed between 1965 and 1967, and officially opened on the 24th of November,1967. The beautiful architecture is a wonderful combination of a Modernist and Minangkabau style.
