Very impressive and worth paying a visit. For a small fee you can get a sarung or whatever you need to pay certain bodyparts

One of the best Indonesian Mosque. Beautiful and authentic minang taste in design. Beautiful ornament, lighting, specious prayers areas. The carpet is smooth. You also can find some of Minang traditional houses in the complex. Prayer in this mosque just like getting closer to God; peaceful!

This is a newly constructed mosque, but nonetheless the main mosque for West Sumatra. It is a beautiful work of art, inside and out. The superb exterior has a traditional spiked roof and many external ornaments. Inside is a beautiful domed space, with lovely Islamic patterns on walls and doors. The ceiling is superb. Provided you dress with due modesty and remove your shoes, you are welcome to visit (but not at prayer times, of course). Certainly worth doing so if you are in Padang.

We were impressed by the architecture of the Grand Mosque. Beautiful inside out. However, the workmanship was poor. It was raining during our visit, so stagnant water was everywhere especially outside the mosque. A must visit if your are in Padang city, a blend of modern & traditional culture. Do dress appropriately if you want to enter the mosque.

If you have any interest in architecture this is a must see. You don't get a sense of the scale of it unless you're there in person. It's huge. The design is based on a traditional Minangkabau Gadang house. You have to see it at various times. It's impressive during the day and beautiful at night. This is worth visiting Padang for. Note that this is a place of worship and any visitors need to be respectful.

The Mosque is currently under internal repair. However a walk around the outside is highly recommended

This mosque is designed like traditional house of West Sumatera. This building concept may wake up your religious side. Feel it.

This is the grand mosque of West SUmatera. Located on Jl. Khatib sulaiman, it has quite large parking lot. Nice and thick rugs, so you can pray calmly. unfortunately, the toilet needs improvement. some toilet are broken. People sometimes use this place for prewedding photoshoot.
