The attraction of a place will be shown through the impression of its users. This impression is obtained through the experience of users with the place. A place with a sense of place usually is one capable of arousing the emotion of users and holds specific attraction. This research is intended to understand the attraction of a building capable of demonstrating a phenomenon of varied and active space usage. The purpose of the existence of a mosque for the Moslem community is a place for the fulfillment of ritual and social needs. A bustling mosque is an indication that the mosque is capable of performing its duty well in accommodating the needs of the worshippers. The Salman mosque was chosen as the object of study due to its unique design and its users who are predominantly young people. The research was conducted through observation and in-depth interviews with the users of the Salman mosque. The result of the research shows that the Salman mosque is deemed attractive due to a sense of place divided into several categories: (1) biographical relationship; (2) spiritual relationship, (3) ideological relationship, (4) narrative relationship, (5) commodification relationship, and (6) dependency relationship. Individual sense of place gradually formed a sense of community of the mosque users shown by the presence of: (1) feeling part of the community, (2) beneficial involvement of the community, (3) feeling of respect, (4) and inter-generational emotional connection. The sense of community shown by the Salman mosque is in line with the theory of the establishment of a ‘living’ mosque within the teaching of Islam.
