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. It was considered as Kuala Lumpur’s primary mosque until the National Mosque opened in 1965. 

The Masjid is always open for visitors but you have to dress properly otherwise the masjid management will lend you something to allow you in. You need to visit it!
