Nurul Amin Mosque Pagaruyung is actually quite magnificent,
it's just been in need of repair and maintenance in many

places. Could be considered to add ornaments in the inside of

the mosque is still very quiet.

The majesty of a mosque is not only seen from the physical

form, but at least it needs to be maintained, cared for properly,
and can be an inspiration. Grandeur mosques and places of
worship in general, should exist on how they are used as places
of worship and seat of religious sciences that his followers could
be more virtuous.
