The Grand Masjid in West Sumatera, Indonesia


One of the interesting places to see in the province of West Sumatera in Indonesia is Masjid Raya Sumatera Barat, known as The Greatest Mosque in the province of West Sumatera. The mosque itself was started to be built in 2016 and the construction was completed in 2019, together with its tower. From the outside, the mosque has beautiful ornaments with a soft red color.

Besides, the building has two floors. Most people visit the Masjid not only for daily prayers but also for Holy Islamic Days, such as Idul Fitri and Idul Adha.

The unique thing of this Masjid is the combination between Minangkabau culture and Islam. The roof of its kind and the crafted Arabic letters on its walls create additional artistic values toward the building.

Anyway, if you need to know a short description on this aspect, please watch my explanation in the following video:
