MALAYSIA ~Masjid Jamek Mosque - Kuala Lumpur

...Lovely view of one of the oldest mosques in Malaysia... it is a red stone building in combination of Moorish, Islam and Magul architecture... the place is surrounded by trees and rivers.... an oasis of peace and tranquility in this modern and bustling city... Thanks once more dear Jobbo!!✿◕ ‿ ◕✿

The Masjid Jamek is situated, where both rivers the Sungei Klang and the Sungei Gombak meet. Right at this very place has the history of Kuala Lumpur started. The mosque was built in 1907 and officially opened by the Sultan of Selangor in1909.

This mosque was the main mosque of Kuala Lumpur until The National Mosque was built in 1965 near the railway station.

It was designed by Arthur Benison Hubbock, an architectural assistant in the Public Works and Survey Department, who was intrigued and inspired by the Mogul architecture of India.
