Ashar at Masjid Merah Panjunan

 

Ashar Jama’ah at Red Mosque

Alhamdulillah, we got a chance to do our Sholat Ashar in Masjid Merah Panjunan (red mosque), Cirebon. The mosque was built in 1480 by Syarif Abdurahman, is famously known for its red brick wall, and showcasing the influence of China, European, Javanese culture. Here are some pictures from the unique mosque:
