Tanjung Bungah Floating Mosque, 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.

  • From resident nearby. Please turn down the volume. You're increasing it slightly nearly every month. We residences here can hear it and it's too loud! Please be respectful to your neighbors as majority of the housing surrounding it aren't Muslim
  • Nice mosque.. nice scene because we can see a sea very nice, nice for kids. Nice for all,
  • Good to take pictures, best to go in high season. Can get great views.
  • This is a beautiful mosque rebuilt after the tsunami. Prayed Jummah here. Wonderfully calm and spiritual atmosphere. Serene feeling sitting in the mosque and looking out at the sea. Mosque staff/volunteers are friendly and welcoming and happy to share information about the mosque. Highly recommend you visit this mosque if you are visiting Penang.
  • Very nice scenery from inside the mosque because its floating type..unique fan design inside the mosque..fresh air while performing solah inside..
