Having been to mosques in Asia, the Middle East, Turkey and Egypt it continues to be interesting to experience the different building styles and inclusions in mosques. Semarang Mosque is big (not as big as Jakarta) but built in local marble with a big forecourt.This can be covered by 6 huge German built mechanically operated umbrellas for shade/shelter which do not detract from the mosque's facade and we believe is a good innovation. Inside as you enter is a very large handmade Koran on display. The inside is carpeted in what appears to be one huge carpet. Standing on the carpet either side of the Imam's entry are 2 striking grandfather clocks - something I have never seen before in a mosque. On the way back through the forecourt we were stopped and asked by some local young women if they could have their picture taken with us - our guide explained it was our height (i'm 187 cms tall) and our hair colour (I was once a red head!) and my wife's - we have "ash grey / white hair. I admit we are no longer slim either!

I recommend to visit here by online transportation. The area is so spacious. There is a tower than you can visit, it's called Asmaul Husna Tower. The outside mosque was so hot but inside was very fresh, probablye because there are many fans, and many architectures was made from woods. The toilet area was big and clean. There is an area to keep our shoes

Visiting this mosque seemed to be on the porch of Mecca. The feel of the religion is very pronounced. The spacious courtyard hall gives visitors the freedom to take the photos they want.
