Admire the blend of different architectural styles at Jamek Mosque, the oldest mosque in the city. Built in 1909 by British architect Arthur Benison Hubback, the main building combines Moorish, Indo-Saracenic, and Mughal influences, with impressive whitewashed arches and a tall, striped minaret. Situated where the Klang and Gombak rivers meet, the grounds provide a tranquil place to walk and explore, with lush palms and the rivers idling by.

    This is the place became the origin of the name "Kuala Lumpur". From the back of the KLCC Suria can be reached by subway. Subway (connected in the basement) was buy tickets instead of plastic coins, holding the coins when you ride, to introduce the coins when you get off the system. Is in KL for the first time rode the subway is clean and above all central air conditioning and comfortable! We could confidently visible clarity and exit and go. Down the stairs behind the mosque is at the confluence of the river and turn right immediately. Where the rivers meet exactly! Tourist-friendly? What sure seemed to clean the river is under construction. However, little sewage 臭ki tsuku felt. And I can't manage it somehow, with little regret.

    I spent quite some time here shopping for scarves and modest clothing. I would recommend the shops along the road if you want more exclusive stuff. Otherwise for basic stuff the stalls are great.  more »
