The Masjid Jamek was built in 1907. Next year (2007) will marks its 100th anniversary.
The architect for this mosque was Arthur Benison Hubbock. Hubbock was at that time working as an architectural assistant at the Public Works and Survey Department.

He had a deep fascination with the Moghul architecture that was prevalent in India at that time. Thus, some historians have concluded that Hubbock’s design of Masjid Jamek was inspired by those Moghul structures of India.
