Jamek Mosque (Masjid Jamek)

Not the biggest, but still the best

What we say: 4 stars

No other mosque built since has come close to matching the charm and beauty of Masjid Jamek. The location too, at the confluence of the Klang and Gombak rivers, could hardly be bettered.

The style of architecture, like much of KL's colonial heritage from the turn of the 20th century, is neither British nor Malay, but a hybrid which developed in India, known as Indo-Saracenic.

Masjid Jamek is open to non-Muslims outside prayer times, but as with other mosques, a strict dress code applies.
