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.

If you want to enjoy the crowd then this place is suitable for you. Typical Asian crowds. Food option is available.

We are non Muslim and this was our best Muslim experience at KL. So kind people gave us clothes to cover ourselves. It was peaceful inside. You have to turn off shoes. They gave us to eat satay and drink juice.

The Masjid Jamek as it's locally called, is next to the railway station bearing the same name.It's one of the oldest Mosque in KL. Due to construction work access was somehow limited! The Surrounding is quite popular with locals and foreigners.

There was a lot of construction. We saw it from outside and tried to get in, however couldn't find a way to get in. We saw people in there but not sure if they were tourists.

I visited this attractive mosque last weekend whilst in KL, but unfortunately it wasn't possible for non-Muslims to go inside the complex at all. Instead I had to be content with taking a few pictures from the designated vantage point. A shame as it does...More

I could visit this late evening. The very big structure, looming extra ordinarily large in the fading lights was actually a dream like situation. Vast forecourt, very high minar, people moving around, families spending time in forecourt. Great experience indeed.
