Kupang Off The Beaten Path: 7 reviews and 21 photos
Kupang's oldest mosque would have been older than the oldest church, if they had not rebuilt it recently. The original mosque dates from 1806, and an old photograph shows what it looked like. Unfortunately the building did not have the status of cultural heritage, and because of the growing number of believers it has been replaced by a bigger building on the same site.
Because it is located in kelurahan Airmata, the mosque is known as Airmata mosque, but officially it is now the great mosque Al Baitul Qadim.
The caretaker, mr Abdul Gani Mustafa, was eager to show us around, pointing out a few relics from the earlier mosque: drum, pulpit and cupboard for the holy qur'an.
Address: Jalan Trikora, kel. Airmata, Kupang, NTT
