From the outside it looks great, as it looms over the nearest buildings. However, the front streets look old and not so nice because of Jakarta's never-ending traffic jam. Once you go inside, you have to leave your shoes in a closet for tourists and you're given a sarong if you're wearing shorts. The tour is very interesting and lasts... More

A gigantic Mosque with wonderful interior. The exterior is not that attractive and the lake in front is absolutely dirty however once you get inside, the place is overwhelming. If you are a Muslim, I recommend that you should visit this historic mosque and I am sure the enormous mosque will make you feel pure. I was so overwhelmed that... More

Huge place, good parking space. Love the architecture & the ambient inside the mosque. There's a tour downstairs if you would like to take a look around & the history of the mosque.

The Istiqlal Mosque is imposing in size yet minimalist in its design. Parts of the mosque are infused with numbers related to the Islamic faith and Indonesian history. For example, there are 7 entrances to the mosques, which represents the 7 gates of Heaven in Islamic cosmology and the main prayer hall is topped by a spherical dome of 45... More

Entrance is free is you have apropriate clothes. If not you have to pay 30.000 rupiah. To rent robes. Mosque was great and open. Nice temperature because of the open buildingstyle. Massive but relaxing and peacefull

It's a MUST during in Jakarta; you have to leave shoes in an "special room" for tourists, and at the end of the tour have to "tip" your guide; if you going by yourself or a few people, the guide tour last 15-20 minutes; you cannot visit the mosque alone, it's forbbiden; better if you coming in with an outside...
