The National Mosque is the city’s main mosque that can accommodate more than 15,000 worshipers at one given time. They say the Jamek Mosque is where the city’s history began. The first ever settlers built their huts at this very site, and the rest is history. Located just outside the city, Batu Caves is a popular attraction among many visitors. These caves that date back 400 million years, today house Hindu temples dedicated to the Lord Murugan. Another popular Hindu temple in the city is the Sri Mahamariamman Temple.
