Masjid Nasional Al Akbar, Surabaya

4.6
Appreciate the striking blue domes of Masjid Nasional Al Akbar, one of the biggest mosques in Indonesia. You can climb the minaret to get a panoramic view of Surabaya from 68 m (223 ft), or enjoy the renowned calighraphy that decorates the mosque's walls. Be aware that only Muslim visitors can visit the floor of the prayer area--however, tourists can view the room from the balcony. The range of food stalls outside the mosque offer authentic local meals.

  • Perform Jum'ah prayer here sometimes. Parking is a bit of an effort though. But it is expected for a mosque of this magnitude.
  • Its one of biggest mosque in Indonesia, probably 2nd biggest, ecen though its hot and sunny on tye outside, the inside is cold so its really comfortable. Lots of space to pray, the dome from the inside is really hypnotic, creating unlimited space feel when look at. While the wall ia beautiful combination of gold and green interior, really nice.. Make sure to go to top of the tower, to see aerial view of scenic Surabaya city. Love it!
  • Masjid Nacional Al Akbar in the city of Surabaya, Indonesia is one of the most beautiful mosques I have visited after the two holy mosques in Makkah and Madinah. The mosque was built in 1995 and it can hold more than 70,000 people.
  • Another landmark of Surabaya. Quite huge mosque. Comfy.
  • Fresh natural air circulation. CCTV provided. Ifthor and sahur together in Ramadhan. ^^
