Every culture have their own detail way on security system. For old Javanese in Kudus and the rest of Java, they just simply use 'selot'. It is a common way to do. The special is that its enough in consideration of security those time. I dont know whats the name in English, but people using Kayu Jati, somekind of Wood for the door, and special bamboo for selot. Break it, and the people suround you will beat :)

Address: Gate to the mosque, menara Kudus mosque
