Located at Tanjung Bungah Road, Masjid Terapung Pulau Penang, popularly known as the Floating Mosque, is a famous landmark and the first mosque in Malaysia built on the sea. During high tide, the mosque appears to be actually floating when someone gazes at the sea.
The Floating Mosque was built to replace an older mosque (Tanjung Bungah Mosque) which got destroyed in a tsunami disaster. The seven-storey building with its Moorish design combines Middle Eastern and local elements. There is also a towering minaret equivalent to the building from where the calls for prayers (azan) are announced during the day.
