Visitors approaching the campus from the adjoining highway are suddenly elevated in their spirits when they catch sight of the high rising monument in the green flowery Gombak Valley, with symbolic hills standing on the fringes. These minarets remind Muslims of the minarets of the Holy mosque of Makkah and the dome resemble the Green Dome of Medina.
