It's Sunan Ampel cemetary with mosque. After you pray or sholat here, you can buy some Arabian stuffs in the market before you go home. It's cheaper than other market.

Every day 24 / 7 there are always people around.. Praying for the dead of one of the nine muslim figure in spreading Islam in ja va. Many small store selling various thing too, don't forget to ask the price. The mosque is good to, old style but so cool

Wear comfortable and polite clothings, beware of your valuable stuff like wallet. Beside a pilgrimage place it offers unique shopping experience along the alleys, related to islamic books and accesories, arabic stuffs like shisha, cape, beads, souvenirs. The bad thing is the parking place. Crowded and confusing, makes sure u put double key and guarded by the security near there.

If you are traveller who's looking a combination of cultural, religius moslem and cullinary of east past java, then a trip to Ampel Mosque area is a worthed trip since you will find an area that still keep the traditional value but still able to absorpt a modern value.

The market running up to this mosque is fascinating - we had a fab guide who showed us around the mosque and encouraged us to take photos. Everyone we were introduced to was very welcoming and it was an interesting experience.

Me & family were here few years ago and we did buy a lot of muslims' clothes but recently during my trip there the atmosphere was a bit different. There were not many as many shops as before and the less shoppers too

It's a nice feeling to be able to see the tombs of these great people. Ladies need to wear proper long covered dress with headscarf to be able to go inside the tomb areas. Otherwise just stay outside and plenty of shops selling raisins, scarfs, long dresses, etc. are sold.

...but not if you are not. Why? because unless you're really a group-travelling pilgrims, there's nothing much to offer here. I like historical landmarks, so I took some photos here and there, had a friday prayer there, and spent the other few hours in amazement of looking at so many people (mainly from low to mid class segments), and mostly...
