“Beautiful building and a friendly welcome”
Reviewed April 20, 2013

This beautiful mosque is a short ride out of Kuala Terengganu but well worth a visit. Masjid Tengku Tengah Zaharah lives up to its 'floating mosque' label with its riverside location and stunning architecture. The local bus provides a sporadic service and if available is the cheapest option at RM1 to get there. Alternatively a local taxi will cost RM15-20. Once at the mosque all religions are assured a warm welcome from the staff and volunteer students who are excellent and knowledgeable guides. The visit is best made in conjunction with a visit to the Islamic education park which has miniature mosques from around the world (5minutes walk away) and a trip to the Terengganu State Museum Complex about 30 mins walk away. There is also a riverside restaurant near the mosque and a circular river cruise which enroute visits Palau Duyung and its famous boatbuilders.

“Beautiful mosque, saw from river cruise”
Reviewed April 5, 2013

Glistening, beautiful architecture. We saw it from the river cruise at the Islamic Civilisation Park, which is right next to the mosque, and both the Park and the River Cruise are well worth while.

“Nice scenic location”
Reviewed March 27, 2013 via mobile

I have been here several times and the latest in March with the whole family. The surrounding is very scenic with river background.To get the most from the visit do visit later in the afternoon when the sun begin to set as the sun could be scorching in mid noon even for Malaysian. Do watch your children as the river is quite deep and current could be fast espcially during tide.

“The symbol of Islam”
Reviewed December 27, 2012

A religious place for Muslims to pray in such an only wonderful crystal mosque in Malaysia. It is opened 7days a week.Non-Muslims are not forbidden to enter the mosque as long as ther are dressed nicely. The experience of performing prayers here is speechless. The view is absolutely eye-catching and so peaceful.
