  16. 16. Cheng Ho Sriwijaya Mosque Promotes Unity, HarmonyTraces of Admiral Cheng Ho’s journey through this country hundreds of years ago are still remembered eventoday. After three years of painstaking efforts, Muhammad Cheng Ho Sriwijaya Mosque stands proudly in theJakabaring neighborhood in South Sumatra’s capital city Palembang in 2008.Strategically located near the Jakabaring marketplace, this mosque is always packed with worshipers. The ideato build the mosque in Palembang was first broached following a visit to the Cheng Ho mosque in Surabaya,East Java, several years ago. However, Muhammad Cheng Ho Sriwijaya Mosque is larger than Surabaya’s ChengHo mosque. Built on a plot of 4,995 square meters, its structure measures 625 square meters with four smalldomes framing its corners. It followed the concept of Cheng Ho in Surabaya but has more varied colors.Historical accounts describe how the Ming Dynasty legend Cheng Ho, also known as Zheng He, embarkedwith an entourage of 30,000 soldiers, officials, accountants, merchants, healers, fortunetellers and interpreterson a world voyage to advance trade, exploration, diplomacy and exchange of scientific and cultural knowledge.The devout Muslim set out on seven missions of exploration all told, reaching Sri Lanka, India, the Middle East,Africa and many parts of this country.The Palembang mosque, originally planned for the Simpang Patal area, ended up in Jakabaring when a Muslimof Chinese descent granted his plot of land for the purpose.The mosque, large enough to accommodate 2,000people, has a unique architectural design with touches of Palembang, Islam, China and the Middle East.Its main dome resembles the Prophet’s Mosque in Medina whereas its 17-meter minarets employ a Chinesepagoda style with octagonal perimeters. Rooms for ritual ablutions are located on both sides of the mainbuilding. That symmetry is reinforced by the exterior stairways on the left and right sides. The mosque gate Source: Khairul Saleh, The Jakarta Post, 29 October 2008is topped with a typical Palembang pyramidal roof. Its architecture is designed to symbolize the unity andharmony of the Muslim community.The combination of red as China’s distinct color and green which invokes Islam is prominently featured inthe mosque, which construction started in June 2005 to commemorate the centenary of commander ChengHo’s arrival in the country. Its main dome is 12 meters in diameter and about six meters high. The tip of thedome will later be decorated with the transparent word “Allah”, through which light from inside can escape,illuminating the night sky.
