Central Java Grand Mosque, Semarang

4.5
#2 of 12 in Historic Sites in Semarang
Admire the sleek modern design and contemplative atmosphere of Central Java Grand Mosque. The U-shaped mosque complex features three large buildings arranged around a central courtyard. The middle building combines the pyramid shape of a typical Javanese house roof with the dome and minarets of a mosque. Six vast, hydraulic umbrellas in the courtyard provide shade and shelter during Friday prayers and other holy occasions when large crowds congregate there. After wandering around the mosque, climb to the top of the adjacent tower--used for the call to prayer--for sweeping views of the surrounding landscape. The tower also houses a museum and restaurant.

  • I think this is the biggest mosque in Central Java. Absolutely it has huge area. But, you have to note this one, it can be so hot when you come at noon. There is accessible entrance for disable, so you don't need to worry about that. If you're asking about the parking area, there are two different area. Outside and basement. Hope this one can help you! Overall it's very nice
