Review of Istiqlal Mosque, Jakarta

The original review was posted on Trip Advisor (14 February 2016).

Tourists should visit the largest mosque in Asia for its historical value and architectural heritage. It was commissioned by Indonesia’s first president and was surprisingly designed by a non-Muslim architect. Its position opposite to Cathedral further emphasizes Indonesia’s plurality and tolerance. Please wear modest clothes on your visit.
