Visitors to Kuala Lumpur must check out this iconic mosque which sits on the confluence of the Gombak and Klang rivers. Built in 1909, it is one of the oldest mosques in Kuala Lumpur. The light rail transit (LRT) has a stop at Masjid Jamek giving easy access to this mosque as well as shopping areas nearby.
Within walking distance is Jalan Masjid India which has rows of stalls and shops selling a range of items such as accessories, jewelry, perfumes, bags, hijab, Islamic wear and Indian clothes.
Another nearby area is Jalan Tuanku Abdul Rahman which used to be the place to shop before the existence of malls in the city. It is now a shopping haven for all kinds of textiles.
Further down is the SOGO department store, a shopper’s paradise that has major brands all under one roof, making for easy shopping. Every Saturday evening, the adjoining road is closed to traffic to make way for the night market where hawkers sell a variety of goods and food.
