Masjid Jamek information
This onion-domed mosque packs a double aesthetic punch. Gracefully designed in Mughal style, it's situated at the confluence of two rivers, the Gombak and Klang. Built in 1907 based on the design of British architect AB Hubback, it was the first brick mosque in Malaysia and the city's centre of Islamic worship until the opening of the National Mosque in 1965. You can visit inside outside prayer times, but dress conservatively and remember to remove your shoes before entering.
