The sheer size will definitely overwhelm you and it's definitely something to check out. Be sure to bring wet wipes to wipe your feet after you're done.

This is the biggest mosque in Indonesia. Located at Lapangan Banteng, not far from President palace and Pasar Baru. It is multi storey, and very beautiful decoration inside. There is spacious space for parking, and souvenir shops outside it.
