So firstly what you have to remember is you cant wear your footwear into the mosque, a sign of respect as it is a place of worship.

The biggest masjid in Jakarta pusat with holy decor and great view for architecture designs. If you are not a Muslim you need to pay for ticket to get in. Better ask for a receipt.

I have never been to a mosque before, so I wasn't sure what to do. We were greeted by a guide who showed us where to put our shoes, and showed us inside the mosque. It is huge. The dome is spectacular. Glad I took the time to come and see it.

The mosque is the largest within ASEAN. Face to face to the Catholic Cathedral church to represent the harmony of the religion and living with toleration to others. The majority that respect the minority. Good place to see and to learn how Indonesian show to the world to manage the toleration among religion ....
