Masjid Kristal and Masjid Terapung : Picturesque View

Here are some of the photos taken during my recent trip to Terengganu last April. We’ve stayed at a chalet called the Qurata Inn very near to the Masjid Terapung. You can just walk there. Masjid Terapung is officially known as Masjid Tengku Tengah Zaharah. The mosque is famously called Masjid Terapung as it looks like it is floating.

 We’ve also visited the newly build Masjid Kristal in the Taman Tamadun Islam (Islamic Civilisation Park in Pulau Wan Man) about 5 Km from Kuala Terengganu.

One can even use these glass as a mirror. Unfortunately it generated heat in the inside and it got stuffy. Anyway it’s worth visiting.
