This research pointed out that Chinese architecture was more dominant at the Mosque Kebon Jeruk. Although, another element of architecture beside Chinese existed in it especially its material components. So, the acculturation has happened at the building of Mosque Kebon Jeruk. It was different from the assumption came from Heuken, Lombard, and Valenteen the buildings of mosques in Java had odd tiered roof form, the Mosque Kebon Jeruk had even tiered roof form, that was two. It means that the model of the roof was inspired by Chinese architecture. Departing from this building, we should say that Moslem society in Jakarta accommodated other traditions which performed by other religions and ethnic groups lived in Jakarta in their daily life. There are many methods can be used in a research, first one is the description and secondly, analysis. It means that we have to make description on all material components of the building and so that we have to analyze them. Besides, we have to use other analysis; that is morphology analysis, style analysis, technology analysis. By these analyses, we should uncover the real history of Moslem Society in Jakarta in the eighteenth century.
