Penang Isle: The Floating Mosque

The Floating Mosque (or in Malay called Masjid Terapung) is built after the 2004 tsunami disaster that hit the island’s coast and destroyed a nearby mosque. The large Malay mosque is located at the bay in Tanjung Bungah, which one can easily spot if going along the main road to Batu Ferringhi. The mosque is built standing on pilings and stilts and is also the first mosque to be built in the sea in Malaysia.
