  • This was a beautiful mosque in the crotch of the river. The building is western-style, but there are also minarets and domes, and it is a beautiful place. There is also a river in the vicinity, and there was a photograph spot for sightseeing.

  • It was quite difficult to find the entrance to the Mosque. Jamek mosque is very beautiful in exterior and interior structure. It is one of the key attractions in Kuala Lumpur and must visit.  more »

  • Clean and quiet place in a big bustling city. non muslim woman must wear a full body and head covering. men if not wearing pants must put on clothing to cover legs. both provided on site free of charge. nice to wander around.
  • For those who are not from this country and wanted to travel a historical places or wanted to know about Islam, their prayers and also mosque, I prefer you to go to this place because their service is good, their environment is also clean and beautiful. Before you explore the place, you need to register your name first. There's a lot mosque that you can visit other than this Jamek Mosque of Sultan Abdul Samad such as Wilayah Mosque , etc. Not only tourist can visit this places, citizens also are invited too.
