Indonesia's largest mosque. Non-moslems are welcome to visit and take photos, as long as they submit to the basic rules such as keeping quiet and not littering. Take off your shoes and store it for free inside; all kinds of footwears are not allowed inside all mosques in the world.
Huge and good place for praying. Unfortunately there are some people outside mosque which trying to "force" us bought their plastics bag. Two of them were having conflict while tried to offer their plastics bag to me. Not my good experience as it was my first time visited istiqlal mosque.
