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.

You can go here by taking public transport to Masjid Jamek If you are from KL sentral, you can go LRT that towards Gombak, drop off on Masjid Jamek station. You can always go to Jalan TAR near the station for shopping or dining.

I enjoyed walking into and around the Mosque, which is amasing, the people are very friendly to the males, however women have to totally cover up with a full length dress and head cover supplied at the gate on entrance

The mosque is beautiful! Located in the city center, right next to a subway station. If you are in Kuala Lumpur, it's a must to go there! However, do notice that it's under reform, so check conditions before going there.
