Masjid Jamek opened its doors more than 100 years ago, making it one of the oldest mosques in Kuala Lumpur. Built in a Moorish style with iconic white domes, the mosque sits at the confluence of the Sungei Klang and Sungei Gombak rivers. The bazaar outside is also well worth a visit.

I enjoyed walking into and around the Mosque, which is amasing, the people are very friendly to the males, however women have to totally cover up with a full length dress and head cover supplied at the gate on entrance

Jamek Mosque is A well known place for Bangladeshi and Indian people in that area. you will find lots for branch food chain shops and malls there. Mydin and hanifa is just a walking distance and the metro excess is very close.

The mosque is beautiful! Located in the city center, right next to a subway station. If you are in Kuala Lumpur, it's a must to go there! However, do notice that it's under reform, so check conditions before going there.

Just outside Masjid Jamek LRT Station. Non-muslim tourists are welcome to look around but outside of prayer times and must be modestly dressed. They do provide a cloak for both men and women.

Beautifully structured mosque, the main prayer hall is breath taking but the only downside is that they only allow muslims to enter the main prayer hall as this is where congregational prayer takes place throughout the day.

Would really love to see it better, and then would probably rate it differently. But I was there mid-february 2017, and it was not even possible to approach it. The area around it is all excavated, there are fences and a full-blown construction going on. I could only stare from the disance, and I am pretty sure that once they... More
