the unique mosque of Northern Sumatra


Toba UniqueMosqueNorthSumatra

Today I started a six days journey to Lake Toba, northern Sumatra, Indonesia. One of the few things that strike me is the beautifully designed mosque dome. While you can still see the traditional zinc plated constructed domes, many others have designs that reminds me of Russia.

I like this mosque in particular because of the pattern and color combination. It’s situated just after Bengkel, approximately 40km outside Medan, in the direction of Tebing Tinggi. As this was taken from a moving car, I didn’t get its name, but most probably it is the Al Huda mosque. Do let me know should I be mistaken.
