Description:

Muslims come together, five times a day, in prayer at mosques. Muslims often refer to the mosque as masjid. KL's mosques are renowned for their Islamic architecture, with elaborate domes, minarets and prayer halls. Masjid Jamek or Jamek mosque is a Moghul styled mosque, built in 1907, located at the confluence of the Klang and Gombak rivers. Take time to admire the mosque's clear white domes perched atop brick walls and arched colonnades. KL's oldest mosque served as the city's main mosque before the National Mosque opened its doors. Close by is Little India, stuffed with a wild array of saree boutiques and jewelry stores. Don't miss out the Madras Store and Saree Centre, both of which have the lot under one roof (sarees, costume jewelry and brassware).
