This mosque is huge and magestic, and located in the middle of town, close to Pasar Atjeh.
Although it is for muslim prayers, it is open to everyone to visit. There is no entrance fee, but any donation is very much welcome.
There is underground parking, just like a shopping mall! And it is also through this underground parking that you can access the mosque's grounds.
You do need to dress modestly. Women need to cover their heads with a scarf, no bare arms, and legs need to be covered. If you did not wear appropriate clothing, there is a counter at the entrance where you can borrow some garments. You also need to leave your slippers/sandals at the counter and walk barefoot.
The floors inside and outside the mosque are made from marble. There are beautiful arches in the mosque, with chandeliers hanging from the ceiling. It is well airconditioned.
Although there are no barriers, the front portion of the mosque is for men, and the portion behind is for women. You should avoid walking directly in front of anyone praying.
It is very beautiful, and eventhough there are crowds there, you will feel an inner tranquility. A must do in Aceh.
