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.

One of the oldest mosques in Malaysia and the oldest in Kuala Lumpur.. Brought a friend from overseas to visit. The architecture of the mosque is a combination of Moorish, Islam and Magul. Thus, we got to witness ancient architecture with a combination design of different cultures.The place is surrounded by trees and rivers. We really appreciate the sense of... More

I passed by this attraction during my walk from the end of the line of the FREE Purple Line bus to the Merdeka Square. The view of this mosque from the bridge is beautiful! The short cut to enter this mosque is barricaded due to the constructions going on. I walked around the block, only to find more constructions going... More

It's a very pretty mosque, lots of beautiful fountains and nice verandahs. Lack of signage makes it hard to find your way around. It's also hard to access the mosque from the train station. We came just after Friday prayers and found a lot of beggars at the mosque which is sad to see. Very close to the Islamic Arts... More
