Sight Seen : Beautiful Malaysia With Flight - Masjid Jamek

Kuala Lumpur - Masjid Jamek

Gracefully designed in Mogul style by British architect AB Hubback, this onion-domed mosque is situated at the confluence of the Gombak and Klang rivers. At the time of research the surroundings were being landscaped as part of the River of Life project and the original steps down to the river reinstated, but by the time you read this, the renovations should be complete. You can visit the inside of the mosque, outside of prayer times; robes are available to borrow.

This was the first brick mosque in Malaysia when completed in 1907 and the city's centre of Islamic worship until the opening of the National Mosque in 1965.
