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.

Masjid Jamek is another magnificent building in Kuala Lumpur. Located right next to the Masjid Jamek Train Station. It is also known as the great white mosque. I haven't seen much tourist in or around this one except for people who were taking pictures of this structure just like me. Not sure if to recommend or not.

this place is a mosque KL Muslims still use, but it doesn't seem they like tourists around it. don't visit it during prayer times as you won't be able to see the place.

the architecture of the Masjid Jamek is beautiful, it's also a very clean place, since it's used to pray. Oiya, people has to cover all of the body with veil to enter to this area. Unfortunately it was just so so, there's nothing special as library or something here to see except the architecture

Due to construction, I was only able to view the space from a distance and did not feel comfortable wandering the grounds. Could not find any staff available for info or directions. I plan to visit again once the construction is completed.

Officially opened in 1909, The mosque was built on the first Malay burial ground in the city. Before the national mosque, Masjid Negara, was opened in 1965, Masjid Jamek served as Kuala Lumpur's main mosque. The architect was Arthur Benison Hubback. Beside the main attraction of tourists, the mosque still functioning to perform prayers.
