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.

With three white domes above and two minarets (towers), this is a beautiful mosque although it kind of "looks obscure" somewhat (and maybe a little hard to find too) with plenty of big modern buildings in its vicinity; in any case, it won't be hard to imagine, once you've seen the mosque up close, its conspicuous presence "back in the...

I enjoyed walking into and around the Mosque, which is amasing, the people are very friendly to the males, however women have to totally cover up with a full length dress and head cover supplied at the gate on entrance

The mosque is beautiful! Located in the city center, right next to a subway station. If you are in Kuala Lumpur, it's a must to go there! However, do notice that it's under reform, so check conditions before going there.

Just outside Masjid Jamek LRT Station. Non-muslim tourists are welcome to look around but outside of prayer times and must be modestly dressed. They do provide a cloak for both men and women.

Beautifully structured mosque, the main prayer hall is breath taking but the only downside is that they only allow muslims to enter the main prayer hall as this is where congregational prayer takes place throughout the day.
