  • Very nice guard explained that it is currently closed to tourists. If you are Muslim and would like to pray then you are still able to enter. Building looked nice from the outside.

  • Renovations make this biggest mosque in Southeast Asia better. Many pilgrims come from other cities in Indonesia. Tourists can also visit this place. There is a tourist desk that will guide you. Just watch your clothes (polite dress)
  • The best mosque I ever visited. Has a good vibes with artistic design. The staff also keep it clen so you will be comfortable if doing prayer here. In the Ramadhan month, this mosque always busy and crowded with visitors
