Tanjung Bungah Floating Mosque 1

I had not heard of this place earlier, but as I was monitoring my progress on Google Maps in a bus, I saw the location "Floating Mosque" pop up on my phone. So I cut short my journey and got off at this place. As can be seen, there are several high rise private apartments in the rear, facing the sea.

I have never heard of this building, Ayush, so looking forward to what you show.
Ayush Basu: It came up on my Google maps and I gather it is not a highly positioned site to visit, Ray.
I really like your image, Ayush! Why do they call it "Floating"?
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Elizabeth - the mosque is not actually floating, but rather standing on pilings and stilts.

I like the mix of building styles and the feeling of spiritual and the commercial.
Ayush Basu: Well summed up, Alan.

The apartments look splendid
Ayush Basu: I imagine they have a nice view of the sea outwards and sunsets must be spectacular, Chris.

Love this point of focus!!!! and look at those details on that dome.. a wonderful picture, Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Astrid. I imagine they have a nice view of the sea outwards and sunsets must be spectacular, probably those flats cost quite a bit!
A great contrast Ayush. Is it literally a floating Mosque?
Ayush Basu: Thank you, Bill - the mosque is not actually floating, but rather standing on pilings and stilts.
That dome must have taken some constructing if each of those squares is a seperate tile.
Ayush Basu: I believe they are all individual tiles set into the dome exterior, Brian.
I would say that roof provides a spot of colour and a landmark for residents of the apartments.
Ayush Basu: It is a handsome landmark around here, Mary.
Ha ha... Chinese people in Malaysia usually do not like living too close to mosques. The solats can be very loud in the morning... I think it's the same in Singapore.
Ayush Basu: I can imagine the aversion to the loudspeakers. I think this place is still ok. Masjid Kapitan Keling has much more residential place nearby, LC.
Clever shot, Ayush!
Ayush Basu: Thank you for the kind comment, Tom.
That is really nice.
"Floating Mosque," indeed, Ayush. I'm glad you were spontaneous enough to get off at that place.
i am expecting a series from you smile
