Baiturrahman Grand Mosque, Banda Aceh

(4.6/5 based on 280+ reviews on the web)
Observe the Mughal revival architecture of Baiturrahman Grand Mosque, with its seven black domes, eight minarets, and 32 slender pillars. The original mosque, completed in 1881, featured only one dome and minaret, but several expansions enhanced the structure's architecture in the 20th century. The onsite museum remembers the 2004 tsunami, during which many of the surrounding buildings were flattened and the mosque served as a refuge. Make sure to wear clothing suitable for sacred sites when you visit the mosque. Put Baiturrahman Grand Mosque at the forefront of your travel plans using our Banda Aceh tourist route planner.
