  • Its beautiful, big but so far to reach, its located in the middle of town near mahakam river. Perfect place for pray, better maintenance would make this mosque exponentially better, it was big and naturally airy so they use no air conditioner. It is pretty easy to navigate and the place seems pretty clean, gives a different experience for religious visits
  • masyaAlllah. The biggest mosque in Samarinda City. Very magnificent, many toilets, and many places of ablution. located on the banks of the Mahakam River.
