Masjid Jamek is located where the Gombak River flows into the
Klang River and with its palm tress and curved steps leading to the
water's edge, it is a haven of peace and tranquillity set amongst
the buzz and rush of modern KL. The Mosque is built on a symbolic
site dating back to the origins of Kuala Lumpur, being the spot
where the founders of the city first set foot. The design was
inspired by Mogul mosques in northern India. Cupolas and minarets
top the brick walls and arched colonnades. As with all mosques, a
visit calls for conservative dress and the removal of shoes, the
mosque staff at the entrance also supply women and men with
appropriate attire for a mosque visit.
