Alhamdulillah mendapat ksempatan datang ke mesjid ini dan bisa sholat sunnah 2 rakaat saat umroh kemarin. Mesjidnya bagus, bangunannya kokoh meski umur mesjid udah cukup tua. Ada banyak burung merpati... more »Alhamdulillah got a ksempatan come to this mosque and can pray Sunnah 2 rak'ahs when Umrah yesterday. The machine is good, the building is sturdy although the mosque's age is quite old. There are many pigeons in front of this mosque...
It is one of the most important mosque in the Islamic history. This actually was the first mosque built by the Muslim. It has a great significance for muslims around.
Lovely place, so peaceful and agreeable. Clean and well taken care of. Parking isn’t that easy to find at peak times so come in mornings or in between prayers. Nice little market next to it.
