Owner description: 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.

“a beautiful historical mosque”
Reviewed 9 June 2012

During the Friday prayers, from the train, we could see many people praying til the driveway outside. It was such a great wonder to see.

The bazaar offer alot of cheap stuff. Beware of fake items though.

“Strategically Placed With Colourful History”
Reviewed 26 May 2012

This mosque is at the confluence of 2 rivers with history dating back to the opening of Kuala Lumpur. It is not big and was even smaller before. I always try to pray here whenever I can.

“A very busy place at most times.”
Reviewed 6 May 2012

There is a mosque named Masjid Jamek in that general area which
was built many years ago. The surrounding area seems to be very busy most times, as there are numerous shops in that vicinity, and also the main road very nearby. Lots to choose for textiles, trinkets, costume jewellery, and even gold products mainly imported from India. Several money changers too that give competitive rates. Need to bargain though for purchases from the smaller outlets. Usually lots of people around.

“Interesting place”
Reviewed 15 April 2012

The architecture was interesting. Gives you a different perspective, as this was my first time to go inside a mosque. The guide gave us quite a good detail about the mosque and their practices. You will also be asked to put on an outer garment, like the one use in graduation. A must see place!
