Also known as the "Blue Mosque", the building features a spectacular blue dome which has a diameter of more than 50 meters and rises to a height of 107 meters.

WaterWorld @ i-City
WaterWorld is a large and exhilarating water park within the i-City complex, providing a great place for fun-loving families to cool off on a hot day. A wide range of aquatic rides and slides are available, including The Tornado, a 50-meter-long tube that sends raft-riders hurtling towards a huge funnel before plunging down into a large pool. Other rides include the Giant Jacuzzi, Spiral and Rainbow slides, Children’s Aladdin Adventure Pool, a wave pool with a giant LED screen, and the River Adventure through illuminated grottoes. WaterWorld can also be combined with i-City’s other attractions to create a fun family day out.
Located close to the Equator, Shah Alam is probably the last place you'd expect to find a winter wonderland.
