Great Mosque Bujang Salim Krueng Geukuh, North Aceh

in #aceh4 years ago (edited)

Great Mosque Bujang Salim is the first mosque built in the area now known as Dewantara district, North Aceh district. The construction of this mosque was initiated and built on the land of a noble royal Nisam, Teuku Rhi Bujang aka Teuku Bujang Slamat bin Rhi Mahmud which became known as Bujang Salim. During his lifetime he was also known as a freedom fighter, and the name of this mosque was a form of homage to him.

Great Mosque Bujang Salim is often referred to as the twin Baiturrahman Great Mosque in Kutaraja Banda Aceh because of the similarity between the two. However, these two mosques are not really true even though the construction of Bujang Salim mosque is imitating the style of Baiturrahman Great Mosque. At first glance these two mosques indeed look similar. However, if the Baiturrahman Grand Mosque has seven domes, the Great Mosque Bujang Salim has only five domes.
