We like the place very much. The staffs are very friendly and kind. Most of Medan young lady enjoy taking the photos here. In the back of the area are the cemetery. Any person approach you to show you the cemetery, just say "no". The last sultan laid down here. By donation.

We visited the grand mosque (only from outside). Was extremely beautiful and easy to walk to from where we were staying at the JW Marriott. We were approached by many students standing outside wanting to ask us questions to assist in improving their english. Definitely worth a visit if in Medan

The mosque it quite big. The design is typical malay deli style, with nice ceiling and some historical story behind this mosque. I recomended not to visit on friday noon and after 5.30pm, as the moslem is doing their praying. Worth to visit.

An English-speaking guide at the mosque showed us around and gave us a ton of information on Indonesia, Medan and the practice of Islam. Beautiful site to see, but much more meaningful with this guide's help.
