Masjid Wilayah Persekutuan, also known as the Federal Territory Mosque, only took some four years between 1998 and 2000 to construct and was built in the middle of a garden on 33 acres of government land. It is one of the largest and modern of all the mosques in Malaysia, coming in at 47,000 square meters in size. It is situated on a five hectare site near the Government Office Complex along Jalan Duta. The Wilayah Persekutuan Mosque was opened to the public on October 25, 2000 and was officiated by the 12th Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin ibni Almarhum Syed Putra Jamalulail. 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.
