Windows To Salvation

The Floating Mosque or Tengku Tengah Zaharah is truly a wonderful sight to behold and the first real floating mosque in Malaysia. It is situated in Kuala Ibai Lagoon near the estuary of Kuala Ibai River, 4 Km from Kuala Terengganu Town. Construction began on 1993 till 1995 and the mosque was officially opened in July 1995 by Almarhum Sultan Mahmud Al-Muktafi Billah Shah, the late Sultan of Terengganu. The mosque combines modern and Moorish architecture; incorporating the use of marble, ceramics, mosaic works and bomanite paving. The white structure of the mosque covers an area of roughly 5 acres. It can accommodate up to 2000 attendees at a time.
