9:00 AM, travelling by car accompanied by my best friends, we headed to Daarut Tauhid Islamic Boarding School (Pondok Pesantren Daarut Tauhid). Is about 30 minutes to reach this place because we got lost (Actually, we never been there before, we just follow our instinct and the power of asking). This place is located in Geger Kalong, Bandung. Its about 5 kilometer more or less from dago street.
Daarut Tauhid is one of Islamic Boarding school located in the center of Bandung. This place is very famous because owned by one of the famous Ulama in Bandung that is Abdullah Gymnastiar or AA Gym. Every person you ask in Bandung must know this place. When you enter this place, you will feel another excitement and another environment. Of course, it would be different when you visit the mall and you visit this place. You will find different thing such as the way of dressing, their main daily activity. And so many things you have to see.
Unfortunately, we ca not spend a lot of time here because some reason such as difficulties to find parking area. Bandung is very crowded, thats why a space for parking slot will be rare, mostly empty space has been used to build the house. After 12 AM, we leave this place and head to another location.
