There is something about Islamic architecture that is especially aesthetically appealing to the eye. It has both clean soft lines, as well as ornate geometric patterns. The Mughal style is an Indian Islamic architecture that consists of a large onion-shaped round dome, thin minarets on the sides, and delicate ornamentations. One such famous Mughal architecture is the Taj Mahal in Agra India. In the late 1800 to early 1900 Malaysia, a British architect by the name of Arthur Benison Hubback designed several buildings in the Mughal style. Two of those were the Jamek Mosque and the Sultan Abdul Samad Building.
Unfortunately for us, we did not lurk. With sweat pouring down the face and rolling down the spine, we called “uncle” after 45 minutes. Back to the AC’d mall we went.

Ah yes we wandered around those same two mosques on our very first day in KL a few years ago. Jamek was so peaceful.
