Al-Makmur Mosque

Jakarta, Indonesia

Al-Makmur Mosque

Masjid Jami' Al-Makmur Cikini is located on Jalan Raden Saleh Raya in Cikini, Central Jakarta, and is one of the oldest mosques in the locality. It was formerly known as Tjikini Mosque (Indonesian: 'Masjid Tjikini').

The mosque stands on what was the estate of Raden Saleh, the famous late nineteenth-century Romantic painter. Oral tradition has it that Raden Saleh himself allowed local Muslims to build a prayer house on his estate, sometime in 1850. In 1897, the late artist's wife sold the estate to the Alatas family, a prominent Peranakan Arab clan of colonial landlords and officials.
