Snapshot Saturday: Underground Mosque


Because we almost always map our own walking tours, getting lost is a regular occurrence for us. And getting lost is an awesome way to find underrated gems such as this underground mosque which we stumbled upon whilst searching for Taman Sari Castle in Yogyakarta. Reminds me of Tunisia, where some scenes of the Star Wars flick were shot.

A blessing in disguise indeed. . . Had it not been for your misreading of the map, you will not end up in that awesome spot.

yup, this ones really looks like a Star Wars setting but it also reminds me one of James Bond movie shoot locales like Casino Royale and Quantum of Solace.

i have always wanted to enter mosques. i hope one of these days i can enter one. my dream destination is the middle east and i am always mesmerized by how my dad tells his stories way back when he was assigned there.
