  • Peaceful, Tranquil. Calm. Soothing. This place is calm and soothing. A big mosque with parks and facilities for people to spend some time contemplating. They have an entrance dedicated to foreigners, where they will give you a robe to adorn while visiting the mosque if you are dressed inappropriately. The center of the mosque is decorated with delicately carved shapes of Islamic arts.
  • I went to Ramadan. The inside of the main mosque is unique and marvelous. It was a nearby train station and had a nice walking ground. This place is huge and the air is refreshing. Non Muslim people wearing purple robe while they're visit the mosque. Who wears a short dress and doesn't wear a hijab. You can take pictures no problem
