Masjid Nasional Al Akbar, Surabaya

(260 reviews on the web)
Religious Site
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.
