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.

  • 嘉美克清真寺是吉隆坡最古老的清真寺,坐落在吉隆坡發源地-巴生河與鵝嘜河交接處。嘉美克清真寺是傳統伊斯蘭建築風格,白色的洋蔥圓頂、綿延的柱廊及花窗。因為時間關係,只有搭LRT、從Central Market步行往獨立廣場途中遠眺。

  • 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.
