Istiqlal Mosque Jakarta

Jakarta's Istiqlal Mosque (Masjid Istiqlal) was built by Sukarno in the 1960's as a reminder of Indonesia's struggle for Independence (the word Istiqlal means Independence). Able to accommodate up to 75,000 worshippers, it is the largest Mosque in South-Eat Asia. 17 years of construction saw it finally inaugurated in 1978. Copyright: David Dare Parker.
