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.

I spent quite some time here shopping for scarves and modest clothing. I would recommend the shops along the road if you want more exclusive stuff. Otherwise for basic stuff the stalls are great.

Really enjoyed visiting this mosque. It was really enjoyable to sit outside listening to the prayers being read and the call to prayers. The atmosphere is really calming and peaceful, and it takes you away from the hustle and bustle of the busy street outside.
