Central Java Grand Mosque, Semarang

Must see · Architectural Building · Religious Site
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.
