I love the design of the inner mosque. The grandeur of the building is marvelous. Since I'm a moslem I can say much about the building include the place for sacred washing. It is comfortable. A good place to pray. The atmosphere make the prayer deeply engrossed in his pray.

Indonesian mosques are on very few travellers itineraries, but many of the old ones have a great deal of charm. They show the locals trying to accommodate Islamic liturgical demands within the confines of traditional Indonesian architectural forms. This process resulted in some of the most original and unusual looking mosques outside the Middle East. This mosque, dating from the... More
