Holy Mosque Kudus

All around there are other relics that are characteristic of a large kingdom in Java (Majapahit) in the past, two twin arches. Entrance without a door is located at the east end of the outside of the mosque complex. There is also a concrete wall surrounding the complex and a gate to enter the tomb again.
Sunan Kudus Mosque more people know him as the Ghost Tower, built in around the middle of the 16th century, around 956 Hijri or 1549 AD
by the name of Al-Aqsa Mosque. The place is named the same as one of the mosques in Palestine because the pedndirinya is none other than Ja'far Sodik or Sunan Kudus never combines memories of the red bricks of the Baitul Maqdis.

This complex is a tangible proof of the presence of representatives of broadcasting Islam in North Central Java who entered through cultural approach. The proof, in the mosque for ablution fountain was built with eight statues on it. A source says the way it is done to adapt the Buddhist belief would be "eight ways of truth" or asta sanghika clan.

Sebagaia other evidence of tolerance, Sunan Kudus forbid his followers to slaughter cows. And until now the Holy residents still appreciate the values ​​that infused the role model. Instead, they consume buffalo meat. That's because the cow is an animal that is considered sacred to the Hindu religion.

According to a page, written Bambang Setia Budi, Holy tower building has a height of 18 meters, measuring about 100 m square at the bottom. The entire building illustrates the typical Javanese-Hindu culture.

Legs and body of the tower is built and carved with Hindu-Javanese tradition, including the motive. Other characteristics can be seen in the use of brick material is installed without adhesive cement, but allegedly with rubbed until sticky and specifically the so-called pradaksinapatta hall at the foot of the tower are often found in temple building.

Javanese traditional construction techniques can also be seen at the head of a tower-shaped building constructed of teak wood with a four-pillar that sustains two stacks of roof canopy. While at the peak of the roof canopy there is some sort mustoko (head) as at the peak of the roof overlapping the main building of traditional mosques in Java, which clearly refers to the elements of Javanese-Hindu architecture.

When Islam entered the archipelago, according to Rector of State Islamic University (UIN) Jakarta, Prof. Dr. Komaruddin Hidayat, was wisely appreciated the propagator of Islam encountered ancestral traditions while introducing the teachings of the Koran.Thus, between religion and culture support each other and complement each other."Religion can not develop without a culture dish and culture will be lost without direction and guidance of the spirit of religion," said Komaruddin.

The uniqueness of this mosque is hard to forget. Because the form is nothing to equal the entire world. Distinctive architectural forms and fascinating.
