Lautze Mosque, Indonesia

Lautze Mosque is named after the street on which it is located. It sits in the middle of an area that is popularly known as Jakarta’s Chinatown. It can be mistaken for a temple, with its Chinese features, red walls and excerpts from the Quran written in Arabic hanging alongside Chinese scripts. The mosque was intentionally built in a predominantly Chinese community to educate Chinese-Indonesians about Indonesia’s moderate Islam.
