Masjid Sultan Suriansyah is a historical mosque. Built 300
years ago, this building is the oldest mosque in South Kalimantan. The mosque
is located in the North Kuin Village of Banjarmasin. It was built in the reign
of Sultan Suriansyah known as Pangeran Samudera. He was the first Banjarnese
King who converted into Islam. This mosque was founded on the bank of the Kuin
river, near Kampung Kraton, which was destroyed by the colonial Dutch.
The construction of Masjid Sultan Suriansyah was unique. The
roof is layered. It took the Banjar's past architecture before Islam came.
Different from any other old mosque in Banjar, the mihrab has its own roof,
separated from the main building.
