Tanjong Bungah Floating Mosque

Masjid Terapung PenangMalaysia's first floating mosque at the sea is located along the scenic stretch of Tanjung Bunga. Accommodating up to 1,500 worshippers, the mosque features a blend of local and Middle Eastern architecture with a seven-storey minaret.

Masjid Terapung or the Floating Mosque was built in 2004 in a bid to replace an older mosque which was damaged in the year’s major tsunami disaster. Situated along Tanjung Bungah’s stretch of beach, the mosque is an architectural wonder with its Moorish design, seven-storey-high towering minarets and 360-degree panoramic view of the sea. It’s the first mosque in the country to be built on the sea, with pillars and stilts supporting its majestic structure. Covering an area of 1,295sqm, it can accommodate up to 1500 people during prayer times.

Opening Hours: N/A, but permission to enter must be obtained from the mosque officials. No shoes are allowed inside the mosque, and all visitors must be decently dressed. Closed during Friday prayers (from 12:00 – 14:30).
Address: Jalan Tanjung Bungah, Tanjung Bungah (opposite Mar Vista Condominiums)
