The oldest mosque in Kuala Lumpur, Masjid Jamek, is also its most delightful. Large cream onion domes and red-and-white-striped minarets stand among a palm tree grove at the confluence of the Klang and Gombak Rivers. This was the site where Kuala Lumpur’s first settlers had their settlement.

It was built by the English architect Arthur Bennison Hubbock who was inspired by the Moorish style of Moghul mosques in India. It was opened in 1909.  

When visiting the mosque it is important to respect the rules of dressing, make sure your limbs are covered and women must wear a headscarf.

Practical Info

The mosque is situated next to Masjid Jamek railway station and is walking distance from Chinatown, Little India and Merdaka Square.
