Overview

In the outer reaches of suburban Jakarta you can find the most incredible sight: a gold-domed mosque. Known in Indonesia as Masjid Kubah Mas, or otherwise as Masjid Dian Al-Mahri, it's built on a plot of 80 hectares of land surrounded by fruit trees and a few other large, luxurious buildings. No expense seems to have been spared in the construction of the mosque: all the domes, pillars, and chandeliers have that golden touch, and many of the building materials were imported as well. Admission to the mosque is free, and people come from far and wide to see it. The mosque is well worth seeing, but do make sure to wear appropriate clothing that covers your legs and arms. Only worshipers may enter the actual mosque itself, but you can still get a good view of the mosque from outside, although you should still take care to keep off the well-tended lawns! – Martin Jenkins
