Ampel Mosque, Surabaya

3.6
#2 of 17 in Historic Sites in Surabaya
Experience a part of Indonesian heritage at Ampel Mosque. Pay a visit to this holy site, built in 1421 by Sunan Ampel--one of the first people to spread Islam in Indonesia. Designed with a fusion of Javanese and Arab Islamic styles, the mosque features a teak construction thought by locals to have protective powers: during an invasion of the city by foreign troops, the mosque survived unscathed. Take a walk around the historical grounds, and observe the lively atmosphere of the surrounding Arab quarter. You can find many places to eat and a variety of Arab-themed shops in the vicinity. Make Ampel Mosque a centerpiece of your Surabaya vacation itinerary, and find what else is worth visiting using our Surabaya day trip website .
