    Personal highlights

    1. Masjid Sumur or Sumur Gumuling: a unique underground mosque
    2. Architecture: a concentric hallway around four stairs in the center
    3. Taman Sari: visiting the mosque as part of the water palace complex
    4. Access: the mosque can only be accessed by the underwater tunnel
    5. Experience: nothing really special - except the unique architecture
