The Jamek Mosque, Kuala Lumpur

The Sultan Abdul Samad Jamek Mosque or more commonly referred to as the Jamek Mosque, lies at the confluence of both the Gombak and Klang rivers.

It was commissioned in 1908 by the then Selangor ruler, Sultan Sir Alaeddin Sulaiman Shah and completed in 1909. It was designed by Arthur Benison Hubback, with the mosque bearing witness to Islamic, Moorish and Mughal influences in its design.

The mosque was refurbished a few ago, as well as being the primary location of the River of Life beautification project. It was renamed The Sultan Abdul Samad Kamek Mosque in 2017.
