  • 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
  • The biq moslem mosque in indonesia, have big space and large parking. Sometime this place too crowded
  • 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.
  • A great mosque located near the heart of Jakarta. The place is a bit dustier than before, and a little bit abandoned.
