The Floating Mosque of Tanjung Bungah, Penang October 10, 2008Posted by asianpixmen in Malaysia, Miscellaneous, Places.
There’s a mosque in the Pearl of the Orient (Penang) that can truly hold its own in terms of architectural splendour.
Its proper name is Masjid Terapung or the Floating Mosque. It was built after the tsunami of 2004 destroyed a nearby mosque.
it is the pride of Tanjung Bungah residents. For visitors, it is beautiful, well designed and shows a resilience that will defy future unfriendly elemental forces. As an outstation visitor, I was in awe of its surroundings which lend an irreplaceable natural colour to the magnificent man-made structure.
It is certainly one of Penang’s finest architectural wonders. If you as passing by Tanjung Bungah, do drop by at this beautiful mosque and go in and take a good look. It is worth an hour’s visit.
