Tanjung Bungah Floating Mosque, Tanjung Bungah

3.7
#2 of 6 in Things to do in Tanjung Bungah
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.

    A nice mosque located in a rather unusual location. Ideal to go at high tide to get the full effect of 'floating'. Not at all hostile or unfriendly to non-Islamic visitors.  more »

    There's no air conditioner like the State Mosque but there's breeze from the sea so no worries.It is a simple mosque.There is 2 vending machines which are the coffee and the can drink.Limited parking since everyone come here to pray.You could come here and take picture of the sea or the skyline full with luxury condominiums.

    This mosque is built over the sea. We went at 11 am and the place was peaceful and we had the chance to go around the mosque and enjoyed the quite atmosphere. Worth a visit

Where to stay in Tanjung Bungah

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.
