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.

Would really love to see it better, and then would probably rate it differently. But I was there mid-february 2017, and it was not even possible to approach it. The area around it is all excavated, there are fences and a full-blown construction going on. I could only stare from the disance, and I am pretty sure that once they... More

I luckily happen to offer friday prayers in this mosque. Believe me it is a very peaceful place to be. The nearest metro station is Masjid Jamek station. Its architecture is very beautiful with some indian touches to the mosque. The mosque is a red stone mosque.

This mosque deserves to be visited. We bypassed it in our way to sultan Abdul Samad building and merdeka square. The design is beautiful. The only issue is if you are not Muslim they will not let you inside but they will allow you to go around and take photos.. But still it is nice to visit. It was built... More

Third visit to KL and i always visit this place as it is just soooo beautiful. You can visit it but bear in mind the times of the prayers. This is conveniently located a few minutes walk from the Masjid Jamek train station.

One of the oldest mosques in Malaysia and the oldest in Kuala Lumpur.. Brought a friend from overseas to visit. The architecture of the mosque is a combination of Moorish, Islam and Magul. Thus, we got to witness ancient architecture with a combination design of different cultures.The place is surrounded by trees and rivers. We really appreciate the sense of... More
