The Floating Mosque of Tanjung Bungah, Penang October 10, 2008

Posted 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.

Thank you. I’m visiting Penang in October on Semester at Sea and will use your photo of the floating mosque in my powerpoint to prepare students before we reach Malaysia.

An outstanding share! I have just forwarded this onto a co-worker who was doing a little research on this. And he in fact ordered me breakfast simply because I stumbled upon it for him… lol. So allow me to reword this…. Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending time to talk about this subject here on your site.
