“Maybe the biggest masjid that survived the Tsunami”

Baiturrahman Grand Mosque
Ranked #1 of 33 things to do in Banda Aceh
Certificate of Excellence
Attraction details
Reviewed 21 June 2018

The Masjid was renovated back in 2017 and it's greatly done.
Hot air in Banda Aceh yet you will feel at peace inside this Masjid. I used to live here in Banda Aceh for 6 years and this masjid is one of my favorite masjid after Masjid Agung Al-Makmur. The atmosphere it gives is priceless.
in 2004, Baiturrahman survived the tsunami with people inside the building.

Grand, peaceful atmosphere.
First time visiting to mosque, the feeling is a bit complicated. Probably due to this mosque had save lots of people back in year 2004. When inside, you can feel the quietness and peaceful in heart.

Baiturrahman mosque survived the tsunami of 2004. It bore witness to the onslaught of tidal waves with unimaginable height and strength. It bore witness to people climbing and holding on to its structures to stay alive. It bore witness to dead bodies that perished on that fateful day. With every trial and tribulation comes blessings in disguise. Funds poured in from other countries to rebuild the mosque and other infrastructure needs. It is tsunami 2004 that puts Banda Aceh on the map for the world to see. Today, Baiturrahman mosque with its beauty and splendour, also holds memories of those who survived and those who perished in tsunami 2004. On this day of Ramadhan, we remembered them.

I was very impressed with the majestic architecture of the grand mosque. It is beautifully designed and is a must for visitors to Aceh.
However, maintenance should be looked into as the new, beautiful, grand mosque has began to show damage like taps, toilets which are not working.

I haven't really been so impressed by the Indonesian mosques I've seen in other cities. But this one in Banda Aceh is really very attractive. As a non-Muslim I wasn't allowd to go inside, but I was still permitted to walk around the grounds and admire the exterior. It's really very attractive and well worth a visit as you transit through Banda Aceh on the way to Pulau Weh.
