I highly doubt that those buildings posted above are Moorish.

hmm really?.. I mean of course they're not Moroccan architecture in their entirety but hints of Moorish influence are quite apparent especially in the archs and columns.

Some of them have indeed some Moorish influence, but those aren't Moorish at all :

Azey, Pullman Putrajaya is modeled after traditional Terengganu & Kelantanese architecture.. I understand that you are not very familiar with Terengganese architectural elements but being of them myself, every part of the hotel look very Terengganese (in exception of that weird clock tower).

Moorish Architecture :

The Moorish architecture is the articulated Berber–Islamic architecture of West North Africa (Morocco and west Algeria), Al-Andalus (Spain), and Al-Garb Al-Andalus (Portugal).

Quote:
Moorish architecture is named after the Moors, North African people who conquered the Iberian Peninsula and many islands in the Western Mediterranean beginning in the 700s. The Moors controlled what is now Spain, Portugal, and the Pyrenees region of France for hundreds of years.

The Moors were Muslim and influenced by the Islamic architecture that developed in the Middle East. Although mosques are the most common examples of Moorish architecture, motifs spread to the design of homes and places of businesses. One of the most famous examples of Moorish architecture, the Mezquita or Grand Mosque of Cordoba, Spain, is today the region's Catholic cathedral.

Look, The characteristic elements that you posted there can be found in various architectural styles, for example the domes can be found everywhere, also the lancet arches can be found in many Gothics buildings, the Muqarnas are in every Mosque...

Some Moorish elements :

The Malaysian buildings look to be a variation on "Indo Saracenic". This is a style the British promulgated primarily in South Asia aiming for a picturesque fusion of local stylistic elements fused with European spatial layouts. The Malaysian buildings are essentially Indo-Saracenic with a few regional Malay elements here and there. They are attractive buildings ... but not "Moorish" ... except in a very loose use of the term in which it might refer to any Muslim style.

Salvador da Bahia, Brazil

Lapinha Church (1771) - Salvador da Bahia - Brazil

There are only 2 neo-moorish churches with this architecture style in Brazil. The other one (at Méier, Rio de Janeiro capital) is completelly in this style, but the Bahian one mixes portuguese colonial architecture and neo-gothic (outside): inside is all neo-moorish.

I put some picture. If you wanna see more, visit this thread.

I don't know why, but probably the malês built it ("muslim" in ioruba language, some of the slaves from Africa that came to Bahia). The church is looking to Caaba (Mecca).
