Masjid Jamek information
Gracefully designed in Mughal 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 relandscaped as part of the River of Life project and the original steps down to the river reinstated. You can visit the inside, outside of prayer times, but dress conservatively and remember to remove your shoes before entering the prayer halls.
It 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. The small Islamic Experience Centre , on the left as you enter the compound, has some informative displays on Islam.
