Antique mosque
Jul 2016 • Solo
This mosque date back from Banjar Sultanate times in 18th century, and had major renovations in 1936 during dutch colonial era. The mosque is built using wood, with tiered roof of classic indonesian mosque architecture. Near the mosque there is Prince Antasari's tomb, a national hero in banjar war, a fight against dutch colonialism in south kalimantan during 19th century.

A privilege to visit
Dec 2015 • Family
This is not really a tourist attraction but visitors are welcome. Just make sure you dress appropriately, show proper respect (ie, dress modestly, take off your shoes, be sensitive of people praying) etc. It is a very beautiful, historically significant building made from ulin (iron wood) dating from 1777. It is located in the old part of Banjarmasin which is also interesting to look around. Not far from there is the old timber milling village which is probably where the timber for the mosque came from originally. There is no signage for tourists but there is a wikipedia article that details something of the history. Our driver also knew a bit being from the local area. It is a very peaceful place and it is nice to walk in barefoot on the timber floors that have been worn smooth by many feet over several centuries. There is a box where you can make donations.
