This is the most famous mosque in Indonesia; Mesjid Raya Baiturrahman. It has a very interesting historical story how it was built. This is also what people know as a landmark of Banda Aceh as a capital city in Aceh province with majority Islam religious people.

In the year of the terrifying disaster 2004, when Tsunami hit the mosque, but it saved many lives of Acehnese. Lots of survivors of Tsunami fled here to escape the wave.
