Walked to the Zahir Mosque it is a very beautiful building inside and out we were lucky to have a good look around the mosque and we came back in the evening when the mosque is illuminated on the outside

It was raining but it still looked very beautiful. As non-muslims it did not seem possible to go inside so we didn't try but walking around on the road outside was okay - the architecture was stunning. Only needs about twenty minutes to enjoy the view. I could understand wanting to see it in different lights though.

A magnificent sight - worth a visit and photo (but non-Muslim are not allowed into the premise). A 5 minutes stop-over tourist attraction.

like this mosque as it was a bit different to the usual mosque with its black dome, but did not go inside

A beautifully​ constructed mosque with influence of Acheh traditional architecture. This place is a must visit. Make sure you bring you best camera and took plenty of photos. Came during the day and again visit at night. You will get two beautiful piece of pictures on different scenery.
