Attending Friday pray before lunch after meeting there. Not too hard to find it, right before Ampera Bridge. I figured, it may contain 2.000 people in one time pray. In the outside area, many traditional trader spread their product such as Islamic clothes. Seen fountain in front of the Mosque area, where there are five ring-circles at the top.

Like many mosques, whether or not you can go in depends on the people there at the moment. It is an attractive building set in its own park.

The mosque is located in the city center, walking distance from Benteng Kuto Besak, Ampera Bridge, Monpera and Pasar 16 Ilir. Built with a great mixture of architecture designs from many cultures.

I went there when there is an heavy rain in Palembang, so I did Maghrib and Isya prayer there. Between it, there was a sermon by the priest of the Great Mosque (Mesjid Agung).
