The religions in the world that have their own place for their ceremony, such as Buddhists have Temple, Christians have church and Muslims have masjid, and the largest masjid in ASEAN is at Indonesia which named Masjid Istiqlal. This masjid is the one of the great architecture building of ASEAN as well. Once I have visited then I can feel to the great and faithful of masjid Istiqlal suddenly.
Overall of Masjid Istiqlal
The over all of masjid istiqlal as mention above that it’s the greatest masjid in ASEAN. There are 12 of huge poles. There is the fountain inside at the ground floor and has the large room for people to pray. I have stunned for a while because of its huge and beautiful. All architecture is about the modern style, also on the fours side of this masjid were built like the building which there are about 10 floors of each side and each floor is able to contain the people as well then this the secret of this masjid to able to contain a lot of people about a hundred thousand people, this is very amazing.
The prominent point of Masjid Istiqlal
The masjid Istiqlal has the prominent point at the architecture. It has the huge dome which can see from far and able to contain about a hundred thousand people. Especially at the center that make me feel very calm and faithfully. And the architect all-around of Masjid Istiglal that are so very beautiful.
To go to Masjid Istiglal
If this is the first time to Masjid Istiglal then I don’t thing will have anything can stop you to cannot go there. It’s very easy by start from Bangkok to Jakarta. This flight is spending about 3.5 hours but depend the climate also. Then get into the bus from airport but just need check the route before which I think that it’s not too difficult for any traveler to arrive the masjid Istiglal.
Activity of Masjid Istiqlal
The masjidIstiqlal of Indonesia is mostly used for the important occasion such as Idulpitri day and Iduladha. According this both ceremony have a lot people to join then the masjid Istiqlal is most suitable for these occasion as it has the large area inside. Once have many people come to join these ceremonies then could make more faithfully to this Majid as well.
The impressive to Masjid Istiqlal
Before I came that I accepted that I never knew anything about the Muslim, you could not believe that once I have seen the inside of this masjid then I feel to the great faithfully of Muslimism. Then I can imagine that why they need to build the great place like this.
The masjid Istiqlal is about the Region Center of Indonesia for all Muslim and included all the ASEAN Muslim too. And for some suggestion for who is not Muslim that will need to be careful about the dressing as will need to the cloth which can close of your body and must respect to the place as well.
