Old Mosque of the Magic Tree Sago

Old Mosque of the Magic Tree Sago

Old Mosque of the Magic Tree Sago:
In eastern Indonesia stood a very old mosque Wapawue historic and always filled with wonders. Not just parents, but the oldest in Maluku because it has been in existence since 1414 AD

In terms of architecture, it could be this is the only mosque made of sago midrib and maintained its authenticity throughout the centuries. Stands on a plot of land by local residents were named Teon Samaiha. Located between the settlements Kaitetu.


Gaba-gaba-walled construction (dried sago midrib), still works fine as a place of prayer, though there's a new mosque in the village.

The main building mosques Wapauwe measures just 10 x 10 meters, while an additional building which is a porch measuring 6.35 x 4.75 meters. Typology of four square-shaped building.

Nico Wijaya / Detik.traveler

In this mosque that supposedly saved the Qur'an manuscripts, including the oldest in Indonesia. The oldest is the Mushaf Imam Muhammad Arikulapessy who completed written (hand) in the year 1550 and without illumination (decorative edge). While the other manuscripts are manuscripts that Nur Cahya completed in 1590, and also without illumination as well as hand-written paper on European products.

Well, now we see the magic that always surrounds the mosque ... believe it or not.

A. The mosque itself moved
At first mosque was called Masjid Wawane because it is built on the slopes of Mount Wawane by Pernada Jamilu, a descendant of the Islamic Sultanate of Moloku Jailolo Kie Raha (North Maluku). So it's not in Kaitetu.

Hitu Jamilu came to the land around 1400 AD to spread the teachings of Islam in the five countries around the mountains Wawane, ie, Assen, Wawane, Atetu, Tehala and Nukuhaly.

When the VOC control the earth Moluccan spices, Netherlands disturb the peace of the population of five villages that have embraced the teachings of Islam in their daily lives. Holland then do the decrease in the population of the mountainous area is no exception fifth of the population this country. Feel insecure with the act of the Netherlands, the mosque in 1614 Wawane moved to the village Tehala within 6 miles east Wawane.


There is a saga which is then told from generation to generation ... when the public is told Tehala, Atetu and Nukuhaly down to the coast and joined a country Kaitetu, Masjid Wapauwe Tehala still on the plains.

But one morning, when people wake from their sleep by occult mosque has been at the center of human settlement in the land of Teon Samaiha, complete with all accessories.

"According to our belief (the Kaitetu) mosque was moved by magic. Because according to the story of our elders, when people wake up the mosque was already there," said Ain Nukuhaly, Kaitetu residents.

2. The leaves do not dare

As told earlier, the mosque was originally called Wawane later renamed Wapawue. Place this mosque is in a lot of growing forest of mango trees or mango berabu. In the language of Kaitetu called "Wapa". For this reason, Wapawue means "the mosque which was established under the mango tree berabu."

There is a weirdness that always happens. If there are leaves of the trees in the neighborhood fall, miraculously none of the leaves that fall on it.

3. Can not be destroyed?
Nico Wijaya / Detik.traveler

Wapawue mosques are among the historic sites, including an old fort "New Amsterdam" and the old church relics of the Portuguese and Dutch.

10th Place in World Nuclear Test

10th Place in World Nuclear Test

10th Place in World Nuclear Test:
How the countries in possession of nuclear weapons testing in the most deadly? Testing in remote places far from residential areas.


In fact, these data indicate a sad outcome. Soldiers and residents in the area around the test site later reap a variety of radiation-induced diseases. Flora and fauna, too, felt the impact. Unfortunately, still persists in many countries still maintain their nuclear weapons technology.

For the uninitiated, This is the 10th nuclear test site owned by the countries 'nuclear club'.

A. Nevada

In fact, the city of Las Vegas gambling mafia built by also selling nuclear explosion scene attraction for tourists. Most, photographs and films that circulated about a nuclear explosion is taken from the Nevada desert.

Later, the U.S. government to give serious attention when the effects of nuclear radiation began to spread. Levels of blood cancer in the vicinity of Nevada has doubled in the U.S. compared to other regions. In 2009, Nevada was officially declared the most contaminated places on the planet second radioactive after Chernobyl.

2. Bikini Atoll
In addition to Nevada, Bikini Atoll is located in the Marshall Islands in the Pacific northwest, also known as a nuclear test the United States. Bikini Atoll test site used since 1945 as a replacement for the Trinity test site, New Mexico.

Bikini Atoll was designated a World Heritage site in 2010.

The next test took place in 1956 and 1957, one of which is the first time dropping a nuclear bomb from RAF aircraft. Testing continued until 1963. Clean-up operations continued until 1967, but the site is still dangerous radioactive.

Aboriginal population living in these places was expelled, though ultimately they keep coming back. In the 1980s, Australia and British soldiers, as well as Aboriginal people show symptoms of radiation. The result, both the UK and Australia were forced to pay massive compensation to their soldiers and Aboriginal people are exposed to radiation.

The fire Falls (Horsetail Falls)

This phenomenon of Fire Falls in Yosemite National Park are located in California.

Ice circles can also occur in lakes that are sources of methane gas at the bottom. This gas to the surface to form a warm whirlpool. When the vortex reaches the surface of the lake water, lake water melt the ice, forming a circle like a ring.

This ice circle phenomenon only occurs in a frozen river or lake that has a slow stream, or on a bend in the river, which flows in the bend of creating rotational motion. This rotary motion to break the ice blocks and twisted so as to form perfect circles. The emergence of these ice circles have occurred in Scandinavia, England, also of Toronto.

Frozen waves

This phenomenon occurs in the Antarctic region. The main cause is caused by a reaction between the snow conditions in Antarctica. For example, an iceberg that crashed into the ocean will cause a wave. Well, it reacts with the wave will produce a wave of snow and frozen.

When an iceberg falls into the sea carrying algae, then the wave form will have lines like the color, green, brown, black and yellow.

Morning Glory Cloud

This phenomenon is considered a very rare phenomenon. However, it never happened in the Gulf Carpenataria, Australia. This cloud of elongated shape, can reach 1000 km and there are at altitudes between 1-2 km.
