  • Greatest mosque in Indonesia. Very wide and historic. Also used by many huge religious activities including recent Bela Islam activities.
  • Huge mosque, but a bit abandoned (not that dirty but not as clean as it should be). There are also too many people sitting/sleeping in the praying area during the day in ramadhan, making it a bit uncomfortable to pass and pray.
  • One of the biggest mosque in the south east asia, also peaceful place for all muslim to prayer shalat and itikaf, this place will be crowded in ramadhan and idul fitri, thousands of people come to this mosque for break fast and prayer taraweh
  • It's known as one of the largest Muslim place of worship is located in Indonesia. This building consist of 4 floors with beautiful sculptures. It has become the main attraction of both domestic and foreign tourists, even world leaders ever visited the place from my findings.
  • The biq moslem mosque in indonesia, have big space and large parking. Sometime this place too crowded

Where to stay in Jakarta

A wealth of choices exists in Jakarta, a sightseeing destination in its own right and a gateway to the rest of the country. For luxury options, try the Lingkar Kuningan area, where new developments provide rooms with excellent views of the city. Head north to find more affordable hotels, offering comfortable rooms in local, non-chain establishments. Up in the Kemang district you'll find an abundance of backpacker and budget accommodations, such as hostels and rental apartments, in areas known for their small cafes, trendy bars, and nightlife.
