Visiting an area that is new to us would not hurt to come to one of the proud places in the area. For example, a building that has a strong historical value. Or buildings that are considered proud by local residents.
One that we will discuss this time is the Great Mosque of an Nur in Pekanbaru. Pekanbaru residents are very proud of this mosque, which is said to be like the Taj Mahal in India. Of course you are curious, right? Let’s explain more fully.
The Great Mosque of an Nur in Riau Province is often referred to as the Taj Mahal in India. We can see this with a building that is very similar to the Taj Mahal. This is why apart from being a place of worship, people often visit here to take pictures.
Talking a little about the history of the Great Mosque of an Nur, this building was founded in 1963 but could only be inaugurated in 2000 when Saleh Djasit served as Governor of Riau.
In the beginning, this mosque only has an area of about 4 hectares, but has grown to 12.6 hectares and can even accommodate as many as 3000 worshipers. With this much capacity, you can certainly imagine how big this building is.
The name of the Great Mosque an Nur is not only in Pekanbaru but also in Batu City, East Java, namely An-nur, Pare in Sulawesi and in Banyumas with the name Annur.
For those of you who come from out of town and want to spend the night in Pekanbaru, take it easy, near this mosque there are inns or hotels that you can use to rest. The price given for lodging here is of course still relatively friendly in the pocket.
The complete address of the Great Mosque of an Nur is on Jalan Hangtuah Pekanbaru City. Of course this place is in the middle of the city which is very easy to find. Lots of road signs that will help you get to this mosque.

Open What Hours
Masjid Agung an Nur is a place of worship for Muslims, so this place is not limited by arrival times. This means that this place is open for 24 hours. If you come from out of town and visit at night or early morning then of course you can.
Price of admission
Likewise, the admission price, of course, is not charged. It’s just that when you finish visiting, it’s good to do charity by donating a little of the sustenance we have. Of course at the Great Mosque of An Nur, it is not determined how much the tariff is used.
So don’t forget to stop by and take a religious tour to the Great Mosque of an Nur when you visit Pekanbaru. Taking pictures is certainly not prohibited here. Don’t forget to bring a camera when you come here.
