Kudus is an attractive city and the Kudus Tower is a very popular attraction for tourists. The old tower is distinctly a Hindu Candi. It's amazing how the mosque stands next to it, symbolic of the religious harmony over these hundreds of years. There are many food stalls just outside, and you can find delicious snacks.

The holy tower is a mosque tower that is designed like a Hindu temple. this is a historic tower built by sunan kudus (an Islamic religious leader) by adopting a Hindu style. What distinguishes the Hindu temple, there are no statues or reliefs that depict human life. That said, under this tower there is a well that springs water from life. This water when you drink can make you stay young. But it was closed by Sunan Kudus and the tower was erected so it would not be misused. for you, non-Muslim foreign tourism is not a problem entering this area because this is not a place of worship for limited visits.

This unique mosque because of its building design, which is a merger between Hindu Culture and Islamic Culture. Must see place at Kudus. The Islamic heritage and one of the oldest mosque in Indonesia.
