Central Java Grand Mosque, Semarang
(4.2/5 based on 380+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This mosque has a very spacious yard. pretty enough not only in the daytime but also at night made the atmosphere quite lovely 
  • Dari simpang lima agak jauh ya mungkin sekitar 20-40menit.. Tapi tempatnya bagus banget buat foto.. Ada payung2 besar yg dibuka bila sholat jumat dan acara besar lainnya.. Good! 
  • Mesjid yang sangat luas dengan bangunan dan arsitekturnya yang sangat bagus. Namun sayangnya tempat wudhu dan toilet agak kurang terawat.
