At Ta'awun Mosque Puncak, Bogor Apr 16, 2011
At Ta'awun Mosque Puncak, Bogor was built in 1997. Located at Peak Highway surrounded by tea gardens , cool air , beautiful scenery and we can view Bogor City . The splendor of this mosque was evident from a distance, because was high, among the mountain peaks. This place is never quiet, especially in the evening, night, even until the early hours.
To get this place by car one hour from Jakarta but if traffic jam it can take more than three hours . You also can using public bus transportion from Jakarta or Bogor. On weekend the traffic is jam but simplified by an one-way program at certain hours, so that can minimizes traffic jams.
The mosque architectural like a fungus and unique. The interior inside mosque look spacious and beautiful. When you are in the mosque, we could see the scenery outside, seemed a vast expanse of tea plantations because predominantly transparent glass walls. Right next to the mosque there is a river that flows from the springs of Gunung Mas tea plantation. This river water was very cool , clear and beatiful. Two fish ponds as a complement. You feel comfort because on park of mosque they put some benches. The mosque Ta'awun often also used as a meeting point for tourists. The beautiful scenery as well be another attraction, for photographers, because enjoying the natural scenery and take pictures around mosque. On outside courtyard of mosque many food stalls offer roasted corn snacks, hot ‘sekoteng’ drink, sweetpotato and handycrafts.
This place well for pray for islamist , soothe the soul and recreation.
