Though i did not actually get an opportunity to visit the mosque but I happen to cross it and I waited for like 2-3 minutes just to admire the architecture. It is just magnificent. Looks totally good.

Majid Jamek Kampung Baru
Oct 2016 • Family
This mosque is 1 of the iconic landmarks of Kampung Baru (Kampong Bharu), 1 of the last surviving traditional villages in the middle KL city. Is is located just a short walks from the famous Suraya Seafood Restaurant. This mosque incorporates Mughal & Malay elements in its architecture. During the holy month of Ramadhan, this mosque is so famous for the distribution of a special porridge called "Bubur Lambuk" to the public. Anyway, please dont get confused Masjid Jamek Kampung Baru with another Masjid Jamek that located close to the LRT station of the same name. They are completely 2 DIFFERENT mosques.

The Masjid Jamek
Jan 2016 • Family
Masjid Jamek: It is the oldest mosque in Kuala Lumpur, also known as the Friday Mosque of Kuala Lumpur. It was opened in 1909.It’s design was an inspiration of the Mughal architecture, more related to Jama Masjid of Delhi. Cupolas & minarets top the brick walls & arched colonnades of this extraordinary mosque. The prayer hall is surmounted by 3 domes.This prayer hall is large & opens out into a walled & covered courtyard.Nearest train station to this mosque is Masjid Jamek LRT Station. It’s worth visiting this excellent architecture of AB Hubback.

The only street around the city without high rise. It's a place to see if you want to know how Kuala Lumpur is like the kampong way.

Construction was completed in 1920 with the original mosque made of wood. The present structure has Malay- Moghul architectural elements.
