The Blue Mosque

I was recently in Shah Alam, the capital of Selangor state in Malaysia and a part of the greater Kuala Lumpur conurbation. An unmissable feature of Shah Alam is the truly enormous and remarkable Blue Mosque (the Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Mosque to be formal). It is a recent building, only completed in 1988 unlike the mediaeval mosque of the same name in Istanbul.
