On June 8, 2009, the National Heritage Department has organized a program for the first time involving expeditions to several mosque heritage buildings known as Kuala Lumpur Mosque Heritage Trails Program in conjunction with the Celebration of Cultural Heritage In Islamic Cultural Capital 2009 (KLCIC). This program is under the supervision of the Organization of the Islamic Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (ISESCO). The historic occasion was held at the National Mosque in Kuala Lumpur and was officiated by the Minister of Information, Communication and Culture, YB Datuk Seri Utama Dr. Rais Yatim. While the closing of KLCIC was executed by the Deputy Commissioner of Heritage Y.Brs. Professor Dr. A Ghafar bin Ahmad.

Through this program, the participants visited the heritage mosques in nearby Kuala Lumpur. Five mosques were involved in this program, namely Jameul Ehsan Mosque in Setapak, Masjid India in Jalan TAR, Masjid Jamek Sultan Abdul Samad, Asy-Syakirin Mosque in KLCC and Territory Mosque in Jalan Duta. In addition, the Islamic Arts Museum is also visited because this is where participants can see and explore wider the features of architecture of Islam. The focus of the visit is to see a mosque from the point of history, function and its unique architecture. In addition, it's also a way to expose the younger generation about the importance of preserving and conserving the heritage of the country, especially the one in Kuala Lumpur.

 Participation consists of various races, religions and walks of life. The program only takes one day. Through this program, teenagers have the opportunity to learn and appreciate Islamic architecture that is well known in the history of world civilization. This approach is also an exposure in addressing certain opinions gaps of the mosque which is considered as a prohibited area to visit among non-Muslims.
