Visit Malaysia: Masjid Jamek, Kuala Lumpur

The sky was getting darker and soon, night fell. It was a working day but since my office was closed for a few more days for the Chinese New Year break, I embarked on a walking tour of the city of Kuala Lumpur. As it was time for the Isyak prayer, I went to Masjid Jamek to perform the last of the 5 obligatory daily prayers.

Masjid Jamek Kuala Lumpur is one of the oldest mosques in Kuala Lumpur. Located at the confluence of the Gombak and Klang rivers, the mosque was built in 1907 and was officially opened by the late Sultan of Selangor in 1909. Because the mosque was built in the early 1900s, most of the old postcards around that period featured Masjid Jamek as a significant landmark.
