“River cruise recommended”
Reviewed July 23, 2012

My rating above is not so much for the mosque, but for the river cruise, which is highly recommended if you don't have much time to spend in Kuala Terengganu.

Board the cruise at the Taman Tamadun Islam (Islamic Civilisation Park) jetty.

You can see the Crystal Mosque, the various islands on the river, the esplanade on the mainland, while getting a quick history of the area from the river cruise guide. It's also a great way to spend a hot afteroon -- enjoy a nice river breeze!

Tickets are RM15, I think and the cruise lasts for just under an hour. After the cruise, have some snacks at the riverside cafe at the Taman Tamadun Islam -- surprisingly, the keropok lekor, deep-fried squid, etc was delicious!

“Not very worth the trip”
Reviewed June 24, 2012

We have a day in Kuala Terengganu, beside doing central market shopping and china market, we decided try to take a local bus to Crystal Mosque, C2. But the information at the bus station is not clear, when i asked the C2 bus driver, i want to go the mosque, they told me to take C1. We waited for another 30mins for C1, the bus driver tell us should be C1, and they did not tell us the frequency of the bus. Later than we found out the next bus is 5pm from1.30pm. We decide to take a taxi. The taxi fees one way MYR 20, we decide to try. We spend less than 30mins to tour round the Mosque. The structure is unique that all. We also understand there is nearby Museum, we request the driver to send us there by topping more money. The museum is nothing much too. We paid the driver MYR40 for the all trip.

“Crystal mosque”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

You must go to this crystal if you come to Kuala Tengganu. Non Muslim must wear Muslim suit before entering the mosque for free. I was given a suit to enter to the mosque. Man and woman were separated for praying purpose. Behinde the mosque is a river. You can enjoying the view of the mosque as well as the river bank.
