  • The largest mosque in Jakarta and is very easy to find. Almost all aorang know. Can ride KRL for here then down Juanda station or take the busway can also. In the mosque there's AC, very comfortable and clean. The floor of the mosque there is carpet and also on the ceiling of the mosque there is a carving with the color gold. Everyone can visit here either muslim or non muslim either local or FOREIGN NATIONAL. For FOREIGNERS there who wear United Kingdom language guide. The building of the mosque is spacious and comfortable for a wide variety of events. Moreover, in the afternoon the wind feels still small voice. Wudlu places a lot and also plenty of toilets. Shoes or sandals must be dititipkn if entered the mosque. For Muslims who don't bring mukena could borrow into the mosque and free.
