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.

Was really nice to observe. Ladies, they will make you wear a full dress robe that is given for free so you don't have to plan for anything. Free to enter - you just need to write down your name and nationality. Stop in at the Islamic Research Center (that might not be the right name) - it's right behind... More

When you enter the Masjid Jamek, you are required to fill in the data (name, country, number of people), and using long robes or hoods supplied by the officer at Masjid Jamek, then you can take pictures.

A british architect has drawn this indian morish Mosque in the heart of Kuala Lumpur. Another prove of the multi cultural heritage of the city. Sumptuous when highlighted during the night. Worth the walk. However, be careful while traveling in the night in the area, a bit dodgy.

Alhamdulillah visited here for solat jumaah. After the solat there was a wonderful salawat sung by the congregation. I remember it was such a beautiful melody. Classic colonial Malaya design by British architects. A simple yet elegant masjid. May Allah preserve this building.

I visit this mosque with a friend who is muslim outside the normal tourist opening times, I wondered around but was unable to enter the main prayer hall as this area is only for Muslims.
