  •  We guessed in old town San Diego tourism in the KL Kuala Lumpur stay date.  Take the LRT Ampang Park station was located near the Intercontinental, got off at the Masjid Jamek station. Masjid Jamek was getting under construction that was still under construction. You could see the building from the entrance of the construction from still elevated portion from station passage and lower down. Kuala Lumpur was completed in 1909, is the oldest Mosque is reddish-brown and white contrast, onion-shaped (? ) Of the Nice staff that exudes exotic towers.

  • Lots of local restaurants (mamak) operating 24 hours, the place is easily accessible via LRT and very crowded if you go via cab.
  • Beutiful artchitecture
  • Great place for pray. Even there are workers for renovation. There are a tourist information center too. For you who want to know a little bit about Islam. If you want to be here. Head to Masjeed Jamesk station by LRT. The masjeed is across the street. For men, you need to wear pants long enough till under your knee. For women, you can wear a long pants and a scarf. But if you not bring it. The ta'meer (staff) let you borrow something you can wear for free.
  • Come here around Deepavali. U can see the festival side of Masjid Jamek.
  • the place is not open 24 hours a day. and for women should cover all of her aurat, if they are not the security will lend them scarf.
