There are many things to see on Penang island. One of these is this floating mosque. It was built after the tsunami of 2004 destroyed a nearby mosque in Tanjung Bunga.

It is certainly one of the most beautiful structures in the surrounding area. Against the beautiful skyline and the surrounding beaches, the floating mosque or Masjid Terapung as it is known to the locals, it is testimony of the resilience that makes up Penang.
