  • Not yet to the city of Surabaya Klo yet to Masjid Al Akbar. This big mosque is always a visitor, the function of this mosque itself is not only to worship. A couple of times here to attend a wedding reception. You can also choose to eat the food around the mosque.

  • Al Akbar National Mosque (or so-called Great Mosque of Surabaya) is the second largest mosque in Indonesia located in the city of Surabaya, East Java after the Istiqlal Mosque in Jakarta. The position of this mosque is located next to Surabaya-Porong toll road. An easy-to-see feature is its large dome accompanied by 4 small domes in blue. It has one tower that is 99 meters tall. Al-Akbar Surabaya National Mosque was built since 4 August 1995, on the idea of the mayor of Surabaya, H. Soenarto Soemoprawiro. Construction of the mosque is marked by laying the first stone by the vice president of RI Try Sutrisno. But because of the monetary crisis its construction was suspended temporarily. In 1999, the mosque was rebuilt and completed in 2001. On 10 November 2000, the mosque was inaugurated by the President of RI KH. A. The room is clean and comfortable. In the morning and evening many people use to just jogging around this building complex.

  • Beautiful big mosque. I didnt go around much, I took a peak and snap a few photos as I was rushing for time. This Mosque is almost 20 years, some areas needed upgrading...
  • Photogenic but won't allow entry unless you're Muslim!
