Jamek Mosque

Jamek Mosque
This magnificent building, located at the confluence of the city's two rivers, is Kuala Lumpur's oldest mosque and a fine example of Mughal architecture.

The Jamek Mosque (Masjid Jamek) dates back to the early 1900s, when it was constructed on a picturesque site in the heart of the city at the point where the Klang and Gombak rivers meet. It acted as the city's primary place of worship from 1909, when it was officially opened by the Sultan of Selangor, until the National Mosque was completed around 55 years later. Now, it's the perfect place to escape the heat and bustle of the city centre.When you arrive, take the time to enjoy the leafy, palm-lined grounds and the North Indian-style architecture. Admire the three brilliant white domes that sit atop the mosque's great halls, and the pair of towering 27-metre red-and-white minarets. It's from these lofty structures that the muezzin's call to prayer is broadcast to the city's Muslim worshippers.You can stroll through the elaborately decorated archways into the prayer areas, but remember to wear appropriate clothing. Legs and arms need to be covered and women must wear headscarves. Don't worry if you haven't come prepared though suitable attire is available for visitors at the entrance.Come at the weekend so you can visit the nearby bazaar. A riot of colour and sound, the bazaar is ideal for picking up some local food, jewellery, fabric or handicrafts. If you need more retail therapy, Little India, China Town and the Central Market are just a short walk away.The Jamek Mosque is easy to find it's located in the city centre, where the city's two rivers meet. The mosque is open every day, but you should avoid prayer times, especially Friday prayers and religious holidays, when the area becomes incredibly crowded. Come on foot, or via the Light Rail Transit (LRT) system which has a stop right by the mosque.
