Old mosque in the middle of Sumenep City, build 747 years ago. Main architecture concept were China, Europe, Arabic. And many heritage building in the Sumenep City, unfortunately poor information for tourism, even in the museum.

This mosque was built in the 18th century. It consists of a pretty facade with the mosque separated behind it. The architect was a Chinese from Jakarta who was brought to Sumenep to design the new town - the kraton or palace and other civilian buildings. The interior is very impressive. Enormous pillars support the vaulted ceiling. It's a great... More

This mosque has a fine facade that is a combination of European, Arab and Chinese styles. Behind the facade is the mosque itself. The interior is very grand with a huge vaulted columned style. Unfortunately, non-Muslims are not permitted to enter the mosque or even to peer inside from the entrance. This is a great shame. The mosque is presented... More

Interesting building. It is easy to find as it is located on the main square. There is no entrance fee.

If you think an old mosque will look dark and smell not fresh, you got to be wrong this time. Great Mosque in Sumenep is very well managed in the heart of the city, in front of Sumenep Central Park. We can find a nice and clean place for ablution at the right side of entrance gate, and proceed to... More

The great mosque, Masjid Agung Sumenep, was formerly part of the palace complex. It is very much the heart of the city, and like the rest of the city, is painted in bright and pleasant colors. The great gate, in pearl white and lemon yellow with occasional lines of black for contrast, is downright iconic. (See photio.) Unlike almost every... More

Located at Sumenep city centre, this mosque is instantly recognisable by its bright white and yellow colour. Adopting Chinese-style minaret, this beautiful mosque is part of the Sumenep "keraton" (royal palace) complex. It is one of the oldest mosques in Indonesia, having fully built in the year 1787 AD. Worth a visit when in Sumenep.

I wonder why many people come to Surabaya and around but do not visit Madura, especially Sumenep, the most interesting place in Madura. They have BATIK, Historical Places, splendid beach that still natural, etc. Maybe there is no promotion from local government and also lack of infra structure. But now they have SURAMADU that connecting Java and Madura Island. So,... More
