  • See the mosque that still looks solidly in the area of the square of the city of Yogyakarta, make this heart ask ask about the history of the Mosque building. Generally the building on Elevated by wood wood still stands tall and sturdy. Entering the building turned out to be almost similar and is similar to a Mosque in the city of Surakarta. Of course the building still standing solidly this very boast to us Muslims. Definitely not in the mosque of the establishment know clearly, but it is clear to see that this is the King of the Kings of Mataram Islam in some twenty years ago. Wood wood as a solid foundation in the mosque are still visible with sculpture sculptures or carvings that exists and is different from the modern mosque conditions are using powerboats as Foundation. Need to care for it so that the necessary awareness of society in General to preserve this heritage.

  • Feels less complete if we were to Yogyakarta, but did not come to the Mosque Gede Kauman is located on the West side of the square the square Lor Palace. Gese Kauman mosque was built during the reign of Sri Hamengkubuwono Siltan i. Mosque Qibla direction Kauman had evolved in an Era of Kyai Haji Ahmad Dahlan. That's why the shof line in the mosque become tilted towards the Southwest. In addition there are a few ornaments yg has tremendous meaning. There is a pineapple fruit ornament means hablum minannas. There is a crocodile's head ornament melembangkan the language of life. There are also ornaments on a buffer that is a blend of Hindu culture, Buddhism and Islam. Behind the building of the mosque, there are tombs of Gede Kauman wife K.H. Ahmad Dahlan. So don't forget to stop by the Masjid Gede Kauman if were in Yogyakarta.
