This is one of Kudus Landmark and one of the oldest mosque in Indonesia. It was built around XV century. The architecture concept was mixed between Islam, Hindu and Budha culture. Beside the mosque, there is Sunan Kudus cemetery. Remember that you should wear very close clothes with veil before entering the mosque and cemetery.

Tips :

Avoid visiting this place in weeks before Ramadhan. This place will be cramped by pilgrims, particularly in the morning before Friday pray.

The street is relatively narrow, it is suggested to go this place by motorcycle, or rented car to drop you nearby, then arrange time with the driver to pick you up later.

Apply cautions when buying souvenirs from the seller. Do bargaining. Or find a local to help you do bargaining.
