Jalan Masjid India

Just minutes away from Masjid Jamek is Masjid India. Built in the southern Indian style, this mosque is a three-storey structure with onion-domed chatris (open-sided umbrella-shaped cupolas) as we as arched windows with Islamic motifs. This mosque was first built in 1863 as a wooden hut and underwent several renovations. The present structure was opened by the Sultan of Selangor in 1966 as it can accommodate 3,500 worshipers. The first floor is for men while the second floor is reserved for women. Getting there: Masjid Jamek and Masjid India are a stone’s throw from the Masjid Jamek LRT Station, accessible by both Putra and STAR LRT services.
