Ulul Albab Mosque, The mosque of IAIN Sunan Ampel, Surabaya.
A qiute big and classical mosque, seen by its architecture which use some woods in its interior design.
Entering IAIN Sunan Ampel’s gate, we’ll directly find this beautiful mosque with its high minaret.
The dominate colors of this mosque are cream, white and brown. by that color, this mosque looks so classical.
At the south-east corner of this mosque there is a unique bedug, not really big bedug and the prop is high enough.
There are many big pillars in outside of this mosque, but inside, we could find 4 big pillars which is the symbolism of the Joglo, a Javanese traditional house.
The interesting one of this mosque is in its gorgeous hanging lamp exactly in the inside center of this mosque. The “Mihrab” is also interesting, because its brown color and its beautiful carved. And beside mihrab, exist a big classical clock and its color is also brown. Those stuff increase a classical impression.
to my surprise, i found an amazing moment from this mosque in the morning when i was there. From the up window of this mosque i saw a beautiful sunshine shone across the up window and create a wonderful flash light. Subhanallah!!
that’s my review of this Mosque. Masjid Ulul Albab, IAIN Sunan Ampel Surabaya.
