Muslims In Indonesia Celebrate Eid Al-Adha

People gather at mosques to perform Eid prayer.

Muslims in Indonesia marked the first day of the Eid al-Adha, a four day Muslim religious holiday, on Sunday.
In the central Jakarta, people started to gather in the Istiqlal Mosque at 6.30 a.m. (1130GMT Saturday) to perform Eid prayer.
The crowd caused traffic jams in the streets around the mosque in the capital.
People who did not get parking spaces parked their vehicles in a Cathedral Church located in front of the Istiqlal Mosque.
Not only the worshipers, some street vendors also gathered around the mosque, selling kids toys, accessories, and plastic bags.
Meanwhile, Indonesian President Joko Widodo performed Eid al-Adha prayer at Astrid Field inside the Bogor Botanical Gardens area.
Widodo was accompanied by State Secretary Minister Pratikno and Bogor Mayor Bima Arya.
After the prayer, the president handed over his sacrificial cow to the local committee. -
