Masjid Jamek Simpang Enam, Macalister Road

Masjid Jamek Simpang Enam (8 August 2006)

Masjid Jamek Simpang Enam (GPS: 5.41454, 100.32811) is a small historic mosque along Macalister Road, between the junctions of Macalister Lane and Penang Road. Also called Masjid Jamek Haji Wahab, it is an old mosque dating back to 1897, when it was founded on the endowment land (wakaf) of its namesake, Haji Abdul Wahab.

The mosque received its colloquil name from the six-point junction where Macalister Road met Penang Road, Gladstone Road, Magazine Road, Brick Kiln Road and Dato Kramat Road. This was later replaced with a roundabout, giving rise to the name Magazine Circus. Today Gladstone Road has entirely been erased from the map under the Komtar development. Further realignment over the decades transformed the roundabout to the present five-point junction.
