Its just 1 kilometer walk from Gambir Station. Nice architecture, beautiful ornaments inside the mosque. If you come to Jakarta, then you must visit this place, plus you can go the the chatedral and the lapangan banteng park that just across the street.

The best mosque in Indonesia with very good structure and a lot of activities. Bringing family to visit this mosque frequently is a very good idea and make them fell happy to pray.

Worth a visit to lean about the religious practices of the Muslims in Indonesia. Surprised to find families and people lying in the open space to relax. Also find folks reading in corners and making time for self reflection.
