About
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.

Went there not only to perform my prayer, but also taking nice photo as well within the mosque vicinity. Mosque's staff is great, friendly and willing to went extra mile.

The mosque itself looks pretty from the outside, but it is not worth going in. It is small, there is not much to see and they make you connect to the wifi and sign in online when you visit. Opening times online are not correct, as of Aug 2022 it is open 10-12:30 then 14:30-16 everyday apart from Friday.

this mosque is not only breath taking but it is also a mughal mosque which takes me back to my roots therefore it is extra special. it looks as though it floats on water and the pictures come out perfect.

We went to visit the Mosque and we had a beautiful experience. Women have to wear a cover up they lend you. We had a guide explain to us and we understood a lot about the religion. It was large and beautiful

A picturesque mosque - walk around the outside and take pictures from all angles. There is a path along the river around the mosque. The best photos can be taken from the promenade of the Klang River and from the River of Life platform. Spectacularly lit up at night.

To go inside the building everyone must be covered up, including arms and hair for women. We read that long skirts and headscarves are provided free of charge. However, we were both given purple robes to wear - my husband as he was wearing a vest and myself (dressed in knee length shorts and tshirt) because I had to cover my hair. While wearing the robes was novel and we got some fun photographs! it was absolutely boiling to be covered up like that with a heavy hood around my face on such a hot day!!

There is a very small garden at the back of the mosque near the river, just a shame the fountains weren't active - maybe a water shortage?

Free to visit although we left a small donation. We spent maybe 10-15 minutes looking around, as there wasn't as much to see as I had expected plus I was absolutely boiling inside the heavy robe! Open to tourists between 9am and 12.30pm, then 2.30-4pm, closed Fridays.

The staff were very welcoming - helping me to embrace the headscarf and we enjoyed wandering round and seeing the river of life. Staff at the mosque itself were also happy to engage and provide information.

The mosque is big and impressive. If you happen to pass by , take a look. Otherwise don't bother going. In order to get in, ladies need to wear a robe, previously worn who knows how many times. You cannot access all areas and it can get really crowded.

Free to visit although donations are appreciated
Be respectful with clothing although long skirts and smocks are provided if you are wearing shorts and vests etc
Not a huge place, but nice to walk around, read the information and drink in the culture of Malaysia.
Located adjacent to Merdekah Square, so makes sense to combine the two visits
