Central Java Grand Mosque, Semarang

4.3
#2 of 12 in Historic Sites in Semarang
Admire the sleek modern design and contemplative atmosphere of Central Java Grand Mosque. The U-shaped mosque complex features three large buildings arranged around a central courtyard. The middle building combines the pyramid shape of a typical Javanese house roof with the dome and minarets of a mosque. Six vast, hydraulic umbrellas in the courtyard provide shade and shelter during Friday prayers and other holy occasions when large crowds congregate there. After wandering around the mosque, climb to the top of the adjacent tower--used for the call to prayer--for sweeping views of the surrounding landscape. The tower also houses a museum and restaurant.

  • Yesterday at this hour 12an semarang and the weather is very hot to get into the mosque far enough between the limits of the Sacred Mosque and the mosque's yard So very hot, we have to run so that the foot does not seem to heat should be fitted into the canopy for walks to the mosque

  • It has a very broad land. The architectural style of the building outside the Middle East with the addition of a giant umbrella can be developed automatically. has a high tower accessible to the visitors. There are lodgings for travelers from out of town. There is an extensive mixed-use buildings for rent.

  • I accidentally came after Friday prayers because want to see payungnya open. It turns out that there is no open signs until entering the ASR arrived. The building is beautiful, we can also enjoy from the top of the Tower Asma al husna. What is unfortunate is the use of common facilities such as bathrooms and the ablution is not kept clean by visitors. Many groups of come that use this facility to shower and leave garbage casually

  • the mosque is not clean. in the mosque there is no air conditioning. feels hot during the day. should be better maintained because this mosque is an icon of Semarang city.
  • This place could be better. Point for improvement: cleanliness. Aside from that, it is a marvelous mosque. Very spacious and beautiful.
  • The grand mosque in Semarang. Arrived here in subuh, and I can say, I regret nothing. This mosque is huge, and the architecture is quite nice tho. Highly recommended to do pray subuh in here. And don't forget to witness sunrise , because its quite nice. Sadly, there is a problem in cleanliness. The toilets weren't that clean, and its kinda disgusting because I found a pentilener which is just ugh. Therefore, I think it will be better if there is a cleaning service stand by in the toilet. Another thing to be fixed is a direction. I think it will be nice if there is a direction in order to guide us to the woman toilet, because I hardly find it and got lost for a while. Aside from that fact, I highly recommended this place to you to do your pray. Don't forget to come to this place when you visit Semarang. Happy holiday! :)
