Chocolate Mosque

At the Grand Melia Hotel in Jakarta, Indonesia, chefs add the final touches to a chocolate replica of a famous mosque in Jakarta. 250 kg's of chocolate was used making it. Anyone know the name of the mosque?

Looks like Masjid Istiqlal.

I don't think so. At first I thought it was the Blue Mosque in Istanbul, but then decided it looked more like one of the famous mosques in Lahore (the name escapes me). I personally do not think it is a replica of one mosque but a unique design combining a few of the most famous.

There is a Badshahi Mosque in Lahore CG, but it doesn't look like that.

In the article it said it was a replica of a famous mosque in Jakarta. They could of course be wrong. Either way it's very well done. But would feel strange to be eating a mosque..hmm. I wonder if religious leaders have said anything in particular about it. I couldn't find anything online so I guess no noise has been made.

MAsjid Istiqlal is in Jakarta and the structure partially resembles it.
