Overview

More
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.

Jamek Mosque is indeed an iconic landmark for Kuala Lumpur. It is very beautiful and very well preserved. Take a picture of the mosque together with the co-joint point of the 2 muddy rivers (Klang & Gombak River), that is how Kuala Lumpur initially started...More

The mosque is beautiful, but the real value in visiting is in the abundance of information you can get from the free guided tours offered around the day. You can learn a lot about the history of KL, but also about Islam, from the well...More

Night view of this mosque is so cool for few reasons whereby LED blue light has enhanced its look not only a place for Muslim to perform solat but also transforming it into a must drop by spot in KL.
