Tanjung Bungah Floating Mosque, Tanjung Bungah

#3 of 7 in Things to do in Tanjung Bungah
Landmark Tourist Spot
Featuring seven-storey-high towering minarets and panoramic views of the sea, Tanjung Bungah Floating Mosque is a wonder of Moorish architecture. The impression of floating is achieved with numerous supporting pillars, sunk deep into the seabed and visible during low tide. Built in 2004, the current building replaced an older mosque damaged in the tsunami. The building is especially lovely in the evenings, when artificial lights reflect in the water.

Where to stay in Tanjung Bungah

As with most of Malaysia's places of interest, the hotels in Tanjung Bungah sit primarily along the roads on the waterfront. You'll find the majority of the hotels closer to town, with some upscale resorts in more secluded areas. Hotels vary greatly in cost and quality, from budget to high-end options. If you're willing to travel outside of town a bit, you can find resorts away from the crowds for varying rates.
