We visited out of curiosity about architecture and history. It was great! They have a separate room for tourists to leave their shoes, and you will be shown around by a guide to take in the most important sights of the world's third largest mosque. Even though prayer was in progress while we visited, there was still every opportunity for... More

The mosque is a huge complex worth visiting. The decoration under the dome is stunning in combination with the metal/gold architecture.

We came here for break fasting in ramadhan, so the mosque is quite busy and a lot of people come to pray.. They provide free takjil during ramadhan (as all the mosque does..) Even with so many people yet it's very good mosque with very good facilities also..

It feels bigger inside than by the look of it outside, amazing. Good location and easy to reach by public transportation, best to take Trans Jakarta bus and step off at Juanda bus station. So peaceful yet warm atmosphere. Non Muslims (locals or foreigners) are welcome to visit. Just find the visitor center for more details. Just next to it,... More

Inside the Masjid is cold enough without air condition, the air flow is perfect. The mosque has seven entrances, and all seven gates are named after Al-Asmaul-Husna, the... More

Close to the Gambir train station, you better take a taxi because hard to find the right entrance by foot. Mosque not that special at all to be honest. Gives a cold feeling. So, if you don't have that much time, juist skip it.
