Masjid Tua Indrapuri
|Completed||between 1607 - 1636|
Indrapuri Old Mosque was constructed between 1607-1636. The mosque was built on top of the base of a former 12th-century Hindu temple from the Hindu Kingdom of Lamuri of North Sumatra. It is narrated that the kingdom had fought against navy from China, and Lamuri kings emerged victorious eventually with the help of Meurah Johan who was a prince of Islamic Linga dynasty, and later became a Lamuri king as an adherent of Islam. Since then the place was converted into a mosque.
Renovation occurred in 1696 and later in 1879.
Indrapuri Old Mosque was built over a land of 33.875 square metres (364.63 sq ft), the area which corresponds to the base of the older Hindu temple. The mosque is located to the east riverbank of Aceh River, around 100 metres (330 ft) from the edge of the river.
