TAMAN TAMADUN ISLAM
- CRYSTAL MOSQUE -
The Crystal Mosque is the icon of Taman Tamadun Islam and Kuala Terengganu City-the Waterfront Heritage City. It is considered unique as it is the first and only mosque builds entirely from steel and glass hence the crystal-like image. The mosque was constructed between 2006 and 2008 and opened on 8 February 2008 by the 13th Yang di-Pertuan Agong, Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin of Terengganu.
Sitting atop the surface of the Terengganu River, this magnificently mesmerizing mosque is truly a sight to behold. With beautifully crafted frosted glass windows and meticulous calligraphy, it instills in the visitor a sense of serene and peaceful piety. As a place to worship Him, it is precisely this that is seeked: an ambience that puts you in a peaceful state of mind.
700 Muslims are able to prostrate themselves in prayer in the designated prayer hall which measures approximately 950 square feet. This comfortable hall is made even more so as it is fully air-conditioned and equipped with modern amenities.
