The President Joko Widodo Mosque, located in the diplomatic zone of Abu Dhabi, is located on the street named after the president of Indonesia. Construction of the mosque began in 2021 and was completed in October. It has capacity for 2,500 faithful.

The inauguration was led by Suhail Al Mazroei, Minister of Energy and Infrastructure, and other officials. As part of the opening ceremony, the minister planted a mango tree.

Us. Salman Alfarisi, the Indonesian imam, performed the Zuhr prayer, which was attended by the minister, senior envoys, businessmen, private sector leaders and Indonesian expatriates.

“This mosque has become a symbol of the strong brotherhood between the two presidents after the existence of the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in Solo,” said Indonesian Ambassador to the UAE Husin Bagis.

Last year, President His Highness Sheikh Mohamed bin Zayed Al Nahyan inaugurated the Sheikh Zayed Grand Mosque in the Indonesian city of Solo.
