Designed in the Mogul style by British architect A.B. Hubback, the Sultan Abdul Samad Jamek mosque in Kuala Lumpur opened in 1909 and is one of the oldest mosques in Malaysia. I have been visiting Malaysia for over twenty years but only recently researched its preserved colonial architecture. This image shows the grand staircase from the mosque to the river which was ‘re-discovered’ in 2014 having been covered over as modern Malaysia developed.
This and other heritage images of Kuala Lumpur have been contributed to the RIBApix library.
