    For the first time i visit the great mosque in Indonesia. It's very wonderful interior design and i really love it👌 the service are very good and also the transportation to get the place. Near from Juanda station for commuter line and Juanda bus shelter for TransJakarta. A lot of parking space. Nice👌

    Great place to pray. Easy to park your vehicle, easy to travel here because it's near Transjakarta bus shelter (halte) and commuter line (krl/train station).

    Actually a decent building. Very majestic in the city center. Unfortunately the people there arent welcoming at all

    This is the biggest mosque in Indonesia and SEA completed in 1978. You can see it clearly even from Monas, Monumen Nasional. It is mostly in white marble. As the roof is very high it is cold inside the mosque. It can fit 200 thousand people and it has lots of reserves for more. The free tour bus of Jakarta stops at one of its entrances. These free buses have 3 routes but most will stop nearby Stasiun Kota, old Jakarta. Place your shoes in a plastic bag and you can carry it anywhere. You can then exit from any door without having to look for your shoes at the entrance you came from.

    Greatest mosque in Indonesia. Very wide and historic. Also used by many huge religious activities including recent Bela Islam activities.

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.
