At the convergence of two rivers, this quiet and graceful mosque is one of the most important in Kuala Lumpur. White stairs curve down to the waters edge, the roof is beautiful onion shaped domes, the walls are topped with minarets and cupolas and there are lovely arched colonnades along the paths and around the edge of the red brick building. This is Kuala Lumpur's largest mosque and one of the most important - built at the beginning of the 20th century, the mosque's design was based on the Indian mosques built by the Moghuls.

The ground beneath the mosque is significant – this is supposed to be the spot on which the whole city was founded.

If you want to go inside you need to be dressed respectfully.
