The mosque which was designed by Sunan Kalijaga was assisted by an architect from Majapahit named Raden Sepat, making the architectural design of this mosque thick with Javanese nuances, such as the pyramid-shaped roof without any minarets.

There are 9 doors before entering the main room of the mosque as a symbol of the 9 saints. To enter there, visitors must pass through a small and short door, so that adults have to bend over to get through.

It is also a symbol for anyone to respect the existence of the mosque as the house of Allah. Because it is close to 6 centuries old, even though this building is still preserved in its original form.

However, to strengthen it, conservation efforts must be made. One of them is by adding to the iron construction between existing wooden poles, and inserting steel plates to help the existing wooden pillars.
