Description

This elegant and tasteful mosque dates from 1978 and is the largest in Southeast Asia. Once you have removed your shoes, walk down the marble passageways above the prayer hall, a vast area flooded with light that accommodates 20,000 worshippers every Friday, and which can hold, terraces included, 200,000 pilgrims during major festivals. Twelve aluminium-plated columns endow the structure with a head-spinning sensation of verticality.
