But too bad, the umbrella never opened unless there's a visit from VVIP (based on my interview with local people)

Impressive mosque that can fit many thousands prayers. The mechanical umbrella that extend in the centre is so useful during sunny or rainy day. There is a tower nearby with an entrance fee to enjoy aerial view of Semarang and the mosque it self. Totally recommended to get to this tower.

Interesting, but not memorable. Have seen more impressive mosques elsewhere. Small by comparison. Worth a visit??
