One of the most beautiful mosques in Malaysia and a must visit place in Melaka. Best to visit either during sunrise or sunset.

We visited here at sunset and the white mosque against the grey cloudy sky looked magical!

If you want to go inside the mosque you to wear burqa/thobe provided for free near the toilets, even if you are already wearing full body covering clothes. It is the tradition and must be respected. What I didn’t like was that the head hijabs were all wet with sweat of others and smelly, which was unhygienic.

I enjoyed myself at the seaside, waiting for sunset. I reached about 6pm plus, and the mosque was closed for visitation. However, I sat outside the mosque and waited for the sunset. The evening view of mosque is magnificent. They started to solat around 7pm. If you pray, please join them.

We made a visit to this place before returning home. It’s refreshing and claiming having the mosque building above the the straits of Malacca river bank.

As this a place of worship we did not made our way inside the main prayer hall. Do note to wear decently with long pants and shirts with sleeves for ladies otherwise you be rejected entry into the prayer hall.

Be warned, if it's closed you won't be able to get near the mosque let alone inside it. Not unreasonable and my fault for assuming that I would at least be able to see the outside. Not the case however, as a very friendly and polite man made it clear, apologetically, that I could go no father than the outside gate.

Actually this mosque is not actually floating, but because of its location on the seafront and supported by several pillars that make this mosque look like it is floating. The mosque is very clean and well maintained. In this mosque there is a kind of ATM that if we put our money in, we will get souvenirs from this mosque. Another interesting point is the pile of granite that lies along the beach area of ​​the mosque.

The modern day mosque (aka, Masjid Selat Melaka, and Malacca's floating mosque), completed in 2006, has a central gold dome and a turret in each corner. The architecture of the mosque is very beautiful.

The mosque is built over the water, and my some is referred to as the floating mosque. I don’t think it floats, but rather I’d built on pilings or stilts. The water backdrop, adds to the peacefulness of the mosque.

Melaka Straits Mosque was build next to Strait of Malacca in man-made island called Pulau Melaka (Melaka Island). It was officially launched in 2006 and the cost of construction was around Rm11m. The structure was inspired by the mix of Middle Eastern and Malay craftsmanship. This mosque will looks like a floating structure if the water level is high.

Being invited to share some knowledge and that was nice . . . what was less pleasant was the pushyness of the ladies inside afterwards to delve deeper into Islam and that other religions were not right - said to us by a Filipina convert.
we went there to see the culture, not be pushed into it
