Ampel Mosque, Surabaya

3.5
Experience a part of Indonesian heritage at Ampel Mosque. Pay a visit to this holy site, built in 1421 by Sunan Ampel--one of the first people to spread Islam in Indonesia. Designed with a fusion of Javanese and Arab Islamic styles, the mosque features a teak construction thought by locals to have protective powers: during an invasion of the city by foreign troops, the mosque survived unscathed. Take a walk around the historical grounds, and observe the lively atmosphere of the surrounding Arab quarter. You can find many places to eat and a variety of Arab-themed shops in the vicinity. Make Ampel Mosque a centerpiece of your Surabaya vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Surabaya day trip website .

Where to stay in Surabaya

Look near the main attractions and major shopping areas to find pricier and luxurious accommodations. Affordable and cheerful hostels and rental apartments often sit in the shadows cast by the skyscraper hotels. Lodgings by the harbor and along the surrounding arterial road provide convenient travel options for those wishing to get out of town easily.
