Golden Dome Mosque

The Indonesian name for this magnificent building is “Masjid Kubah Mas”

On my way back to Jakarta after meeting some distant family members, I passed by this beautiful mosque. Also known as Masjid Dian Al-Mahri – named after the person who commissioned this mosque – it’s not only a place for prayer but a place for community. The dome of the mosque is made of gold and the grounds that surround the mosque are filled with exotic and lovely plants. The architecture is breathtaking and even if you’re not a religious person, you can appreciate the beauty of this mosque and feel a sense of peace just being there.
