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. « less

Over a century old now, Masjid Jamek is amongst the oldest mosques in Malaysia - it is located on Jalan Tun Perak. Masjid Jamek literally translates to 'Friday Mosque'. As mentioned in travel guides, the mosque is located where Kuala Lumpur's history began - at the confluence of the Klang and Gombak rivers. Interestingly, the muddy estuaries of the Klang... More

This mosque is very beautiful, set at the confluence of KL's two rivers, but what made it such a rewarding visit was the tour we were given by a volunteer. The prayer hall was just about to close to visitors in anticipation of the midday prayers but our guide rushed us there so that we got chance to look at... More

The tour around the mosque will take you only 10 minutes, so go there only if you are already around. This was the first time I was in a mosque, so for me it was worth it, but there is not that much to see besides the building itself that is not that big. At the entrance they have robes... More

Nice little mosque and as non-Muslims we received a very friendly welcome and got attentive assistance with the clothing that we had to borrow. The volunteer tour guide was also very helpful and gave us a good short tour of the inner section of the mosque.

Although this is one of the oldest Mosques in KL, it is not that big. It is easily reached as the Masjid Jamek train station is right next door. The architecture is very nice and we found all the people at the mosque to be very, very friendly. Make sure you walk around the perimeter of the area as it... More

Kuala Lumpur city tour included visiting the mosque. The mosque has a Moorish architecture. Across the Gombak River stands the Sultan Abdul Samad Building, a building that was designed by the same architect and shares a similar style. Nearby is the Masjid Jamek LRT station that is served by the Kelana Jaya Line, Sri Petaling Line and Ampang Line. The... More

I did my friday prayer here, the wudhu facilities were not working so have to take water out from a pond that is open near the toilet. I could feel how people were excited to do the prayer in the Mesjid, nice technologies were used for the khutbah

After hearing of the Saturday night markets, my travel companion and I ventured to the masjid jamek railway station and attempted to find the markets. Many people didn't know they existed but we did eventually get good directions. It was worth the effort. Stall after stall of clothing, jewellery, phones, toys -you name it. I bought a cup of hot...
