Fodor's Expert Review Grand Mosque of Medan

Belawan Religious Building/Site/Shrine

Constructed in 1906, the Grand Mosque, or Mesjid Raya, was designed by a Dutch architect, and tombs of former sultans can be found on its grounds. Make sure you're properly attired before entering the mosque; women are required to cover their heads. Expect to spend about 10,000 Rp for a visit, plus a tip for the person who looks after your shoes. Impromptu guides may approach you as you enter and offer their services (whether you'd like them or not) for a fee.
