Masjid Agung Semarang has an amazing and interesting architecture. If you are going up to the tower, you can see Semarang landscape. Hopefully they will improve the cleanliness of this beautiful mosque.

Actually I visited this mosque around 2014 or 2015, but I can't choose that year for making this review. This is the unforgetable mosque I've ever visited. I really really miss that moment. I'll go to there again, someday.
