There are at least five-thousand people of ethnic Arab descent living in Surabaya, most of them in the Ampel District around this venerable mosque. The four-star rating we have given here is really for all of Ampel, not just the ancient mosque, which is the centre of it, spiritually and culturally.

The mosque is approached through a pilgrim's market where you can buy prayer beads, lace shawls, dates from Arabia and so forth. The side streets off here have terrace houses, some of them with Mecca painted on the front wall to represent that the resident is a haji. At the end of the market is the mosque compound itself. Dating back to the fifteenth century, it boasts a whole grove of wooden columns, giving the whole building a cavernous feel. In the graveyard behind is the tomb of Saint Ampel, one of the nine holy men who brought Islam to Java.
