Here's what's refreshing about the Steel Mosque. Unlike most mosques where there is a physical separation between the male and femal sections, there is none here (as it should be). There is a small room at the back of the prayer hall for ladies who need to change before or after prayer.
A view to the right of the prayer hall. Can you spot Putra Mosque in background?
This is the view to the left side of the prayer hall.
Therea are study areas on the first floor of the mosque, which people can use to conduct lectures or classes. You need to apply for permission to use them, of course.
Between the Steel Mosque and Putra Mosque, I think Putra Mosque is more beautiful. Nevertheless, Steel Mosque has a unique architecture and the open space design gives a calming, relaxing feeling.
