{kuala lumpur} masjid jamek

October 22, 2016

Even though Masjid Jamek is not the National Mosque of Malaysia, it’s still quite an impressive place to visit. Instead of a purple robe and separate black veil like at Masjid Negara (the National Mosque) at Masjid Jamek I got to wear a red robe that came with a hood for the head. Masjid Jamek is on the of the oldest mosques in all of Kuala Lumpur, which is quite impressive because let me tell you, this city has tons and tons of place of worship.

Masjid Jamek is a particularly nice mosque to visit because it’s at the intersection of two different rivers and has distinct brick and dome work that make this place quite the feast for the eyes. I love that having visited Malaysia I’ve now been able to see what Islamic places of worship are like from the inside.
