The well-known Wisma Yakin building of Masjid India has always been the attraction and hub for those who value the art and quality workmanship of experienced tailors. This historic 12-storey business complex and corporate office was opened to the public in 1976, making it one of the oldest buildings in Kuala Lumpur. Customarily flocked by visitors especially during major festival periods such as Aidilfitri and Aidiladha, Wisma Yakin is certainly known as a major shopping destination for Malay traditional wear as well as Islamic fashion.
Wisma Yakin has long been the centre for local fashion designers and tailors with years of expertise, who have also long been offering affordable rates. There are also boutiques selling ready-made clothes that offer a selection of renown brands, bookstores and even shops catering to Islamic goods. It is no wonder that visitors from all walks of life regard it as one of Kuala Lumpur’s most iconic shopping destinations.
On weekends and holidays, the areas surrounding Wisma Yakin become more and more packed with droves of visitors. Its strategic location and proximity to the Masjid Jamek LRT station and just minutes walk to the popular shopping street of Jalan Tunku Abdul Rahman warrant its position as a business complex to be visited by many.
At the end of the day, Wisma Yakin will always meet the needs of those with precise tastes looking for something unique then, now and the future.
