Crystal Mosque, Terengganu
Yeay! Dear husband will be back today! 3 days seems to last forever. As promised, behold ; the crystal mosque of Terengganu.
Well, you don't think that it is made from pure crystals right? If so, then we will be worrying about people steal the crystals day and night..hehe. Actually, the exterior of this mosque was built from a shining golden-bronze glass (or is it mirror because you can see your reflection clearly) that made it seems crystal-like. It shines perfectly under the striking sunshine as if it is glittering.
On top of it, it is located on a river that made it as one of the most famous 'floating-mosque' here in Malaysia. With its amazing architecture plus the breath-taking scenery, i can say that it is so perfect that it should be in the list of 7 wonders of the world! (so ambitious..hehe)
The main door to the females' praying room. I should take my wedding pictures here last time ;-p
The signboard says ''welcome to the crystal mosque".
Surprisingly, the interior is not as transparent as we taught. The transparent part is just for lighting propose i think. It still use concrete inside but of course with beautiful carvings.I heart the chandelier, wondering how much it costs because it is very gigantic!
Even the 'telekung' (for us females Muslims use to wear during prayer) is so luxury with high quality fabric and the colorful embroidery.
Huge praying area
I should take more pictures, however, we were bound with the school tour schedule. We missed many interesting parts here.. ( T_T )*. So that's all...chow
