Istiqlal Mosque is one of the most important buildings in Jakarta, not only for the fact that it was built to commemorate Indonesia’s independence, but also because it symbolizes the harmony between religions. It was designed by a Christian self-taught architect Frederich Silaban, and is located right across the Jakarta Cathedral in Central Jakarta.
Built in the international style of architecture, which emerged in western Europe, the design of the mosque was largely influenced by the tropical climate of Indonesia. It’s well-ventilated as there is no solid wall, which allows the air breezing in.
