  • An iconic Islamic building full of historical events and spiritual presence. By far, it is the biggest mosque in Southeast Asia region. The area surrounding the mosque has many historical spots (like the Cathedral and National Monument). Istiqlal Mosque is open for non-Muslim tourists for free, just need to dress properly and respectfully.
  • Renovations make this biggest mosque in Southeast Asia better. Many pilgrims come from other cities in Indonesia. Tourists can also visit this place. There is a tourist desk that will guide you. Just watch your clothes (polite dress)
