A reminder to myself how big, strong and destructive tsunami is...the guide said that the water reached up to the top of the mosque where the crescent is!

You should dressed up properly to enter this mosque. For gentlemen you should use a long pants and women should wear hijab, long pants and long sleeve shirts. Right now they're still renovating the mosque by placing huge umbrellas and tiles.

When we visited this mosque, it was still under renovation.. However, we can see that this will be a really beautiful mosque. The white mables were being installed. The architecture is certainly unique. It is suggested that visitors dress properly and women wear scarves to honor the religious place.

The outside of this mosque is under construction when i visit it. Look like they are installing big umbrella canopy similar to Masjidil Haram. But the interior was so beautiful.

INGGRIS This mosque is an icon of the city of Banda Aceh, the architecture is very typical, praying here gives a sense of calm is over, and this mosque is a silent witness to the ferocity of the 2004 tsunami which claimed so many victims.
