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.

  • Large mosques are equipped with large umbrellas and there is a tower that visitors can climb to the tower using an elevator. It also has parking and large gardens. When the evening getting crowded, many citizens are relaxing around the area.

  • 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, has very good architecture design. Cozy place for praying. But its not really clean and hard to find place for shoes. I hope it can be fixed.
  • Very huge mosque complex, with ample space for parking. The architecture is very unique, a blend architecture between traditional Javanese and Madinah.
  • Beatiful mosque with great architechture, also full of history of islamic society in Central Java.
  • Good place for praying, the architecture, the facility is pretty good, but if you wanna go here and hate about the traffic, just come from the northside, ( Simpang lima - MT- Haryono -Citarum- Arteri Soekarno Hatta- Jl Gajah)
