Masjid Jamek stands at the confluence of Sungai Klang and Sungai Gombak.

AT an era of our history, the muddy confluence of the Klang and Gombak rivers served mainly as a means of transport for the tin-mining industry. Its waters were so pristine people would throng to the river at Masjid Jamek to perform ablution before prayers.
