Masjid Agung Sumenep


Sumenep

Masjid Agung Sumenep ini terletak di jantung kota Sumenep, tepatnya di depan Tamana Kota Adipura. Masjid ini merupakan salah satu masjid tertua di Indonesia yang memiliki ciri design yang dipengaruhi oleh gaya Islam, Cina dan Eropa.

Akulturasi design yang langsung bisa dilihat adalah dari pintu gerbangnya, yang terlihat kokoh layaknya sebuah benteng di Roma dengan pintu kayu kuno. Masjid ini di bangun oleh Tumenggung Arya Notokusumo I, yang terkenal dengan Panembahan Sumolo.

Masjid ini dibangun setelah pembangunan Kraton Sumenep dengan arsitek yang sama dengan pembangunan Kraton yaitu, Lauw Piango. Masjid ini mulai dibangun sejak tahun 1198 H atau 1779 Masehi dan selesai pada tahun 1206 H atau 1787 M.

Setelah pembangunan masjid ini selesai, Pangeran Notokusuma memberikan wasiat yang harus dipatuhi, dan berbunyi:

"Masjid ini adalah Baitullah, berwasiat Pangeran Natakusuma penguasa di negeri/keraton Sumenep. Sesungguhnya wasiatku kepada orang yang memerintah (selaku penguasa) dan menegakkan kebaikan. Jika terdapat Masjid ini sesudahku (keadaan) aib, maka perbaiki. Karena sesungguhnya Masjid ini wakaf, tidak boleh diwariskan, dan tidak boleh dijual, dan tidak boleh dirusak."

Sejak saat itu, masyarakat sekitar masjid selalu berpartipasi untuk mengurus masjid ini agar selalu kuat menghadapi waktu.
