Not only offers some beach and shopping tourism, but Batam also offers religious tourism. You can visit the Jabal Arafah Mosque. It is located in Lubuk Baja, Batam City.
This mosque is unique because it is not only a place of worship for Muslims but also a family religious tourism destination in Batam. The Jabal Arafah Mosque which is located in Nagoya, the business center of Batam City, Kepulauan Riau, is a favorite place to spend time before breaking the fast, on Ramadan 1440 Hijriah.
Various corners of the mosque, ranging from parks, ruang sholat, libraries, to the tower of view of the Jabal Arafah Mosque are full of Batam residents.
The garden in the mosque is very neat, with greenery and a fountain that refreshes the eye. On the mosquejabalarafah.com website, it is stated that the mosque was deliberately built with a multifunctional purpose, including as a religious tourism destination.
A number of residents choose to spend their time in the library, which provides various reading corners from donations of corporate social responsibility funds.
In the library, it also prepared four units of computers which are used by residents to watch famous ustad lectures. The Jabal Arafah Mosque also has a fashion center and cafe which is located next to the mosque so that you can wait for prayer time or study by enjoying culinary delights.
Every Friday, this mosque also opens opportunities for street vendors to sell. There is no benchmark for the cost of the selling location. Traders only need to fill the box as they want.
