This place is average at best. Stop by if you are in the vicinity. Not worth the travel if you are not.

Mosque is huge and love the simple layout and design of the building. There are multiple entrance and exit points and can be confusing when we want to get out of the building. Nice place for phototaking. Worth the short visit!

The mosque is amazing, considering how old it is. Well ventilated. Quality pray all the time. Parking is very bad, you're stranded on the street. However, it's worth the trouble.

Well worth a visit. This is a huge building and fascinating. I am not a Muslim but go with a Muslim if you can and listen and learn. Its really so well worth an hour or so.

The grand mosque is beautiful and the stark difference between Indonesian Islamic culture and Arabic Islamic culture becomes so obvious once you walk inside. Women and men are separated only by a hip high barrier and are side by side, whilst families gather together in between prayer times. So nice to be able to experience a mosque, it's peace and...
