ATTA AWUN MOSQUE

<p class="has-drop-cap has-normal-font-size" value="<amp-fit-text layout="fixed-height" min-font-size="6" max-font-size="72" height="80">The day before the New Year, I had the opportunity to visit a place in Bogor, West Java. This place is a Mosque, the Atta Awun Mosque, located on the PUNCAK area of Bogor. Aside from being a place of worship, this Mosque is also a tourist destination because of its attractive architecture and green views from the expanse of tea plantations that surround it. The fresh air of the mountains is felt when you are here. That is what makes the PUNCAK become the main destination of Jakarta people who are bored with dirty air and crowded city atmosphere.

I came there the day before and stayed at the house of my brother who lives nearby. But for visitors with a sufficient budget, there are many choices of hotels and inns or villas in the area. I planned to visit the Mosque in the morning so I could enjoy and photograph the beauty of the sunrise, but in the morning there was very heavy and foggy rain. But for a street photographer, bad weather or good weather are equally beneficial. There are always things that can be processed into a work of art. So here are some of the best photos I took during my visit.

The first three pictures below are the situation of my trip in the afternoon to my brother’s house. At that time I was trapped by road closures due to traffic decomposition. This temporary road closure is done to reduce the density of vehicles going to the PUNCAK. This is often done by the police on weekends or on holidays.

The brother’s house that I will be staying at is located in a village that can only be accessed by foot or by riding a motorcycle, through a small alleyway that is quite narrow. I also took some photos while walking to get there.

As I said at the beginning that when I arrived at the mosque, heavy rains flushed along with thick fog that covered almost the entire mosque building. So I had a little trouble photographing the mosque building completely. But I tried the best I could produce. Here are some pictures of the mosque building.

Thus the short story of my cheap vacation at the end of the year. Hopefully useful and inspiring.
