Masjid Jamek - Kuala Lumpur

Designed in the Mogul style by British architect A.B. Hubback, the Jamek mosque in Kuala Lumpur opened in 1909 and is one of the oldest mosques in Malaysia.  While visiting the Masjid Jamek area earlier this month, it was noticeable just how much work is now being done to preserve older buildings in this part of the city.  Notably the grand staircase from the mosque to the river was only re-discovered in 2014 after decades of being covered over as modern Malaysia developed. Having been a visitor to Kuala Lumpur for nearly twenty years, this is the first trip where I have really noticed the architectural heritage and stopped to look.
