What interest me to check out the mosque is because it's the biggest in Southeast Asia. Well, it's huge but there's nothing special about it. But it's interesting enough that it's located just the opposite side of the Catholic Cathedral.

I visited it for Friday (jummah) prayer. Was very busy. Good sound system. Afterwards I visited the national monument (MONAS) which is only a 10 minute walk away. Makes sense to combine both locations in one visit.
