photoblog image Tanjung Bungah Floating Mosque 2

Tanjung Bungah Floating Mosque 2

Despite the name, it actually stands on stilts, so it is still a concrete built mosque, with a considerably tall tower. A walkway leads to the front entrance of the building. To the sides are facilities for ablutions and there are also small tables with chairs, to enjoy the views of the sea right beside it. I was visiting at a quiet time and was able to wander around in solitude.

OK...it has the familiar, uncluttered, elegant appearance I expect in a well-maintained mosque, Ayush.

Nice image.
Ayush Basu: Thank you. I liked this place too, Ray.
I love how bright and airy it is!
Ayush Basu: It certainly was that, Elizabeth, especially with the afternoon sun streaming in.

Very interesting Ayush
Ayush Basu: I am pleased you find it so, Chris.
Ha, I thought that was a confessional at first Ayush.
Ayush Basu: Likely first impression, Chad. But then there is a mic which will probably broadcast it all smile
It is a fine building inside, I'm presuming that is some sort of pulpit where the Imam speaks from.
Ayush Basu: I assume so too, Brian.
Quite light and airy.
Ayush Basu: The afternoon sun certainly helped, Mary.
It is a beautifully light and airy space Ayush
Ayush Basu: I agree with you completely, Bill.
That is so bright and happy. A nicely composed shot.
Ayush Basu: Thank you. I liked this place too, Michael.
Where I live there are TONS of mosques, and we keep getting invited into them for food lol... i've never seen the inside of one tho. beautiful
Ayush Basu: That is a good thing then, Elaine. All you got to do is, accept the invite! smile

I can imagine it being filled by bowing men at the right hour.
Ayush Basu: Quite right, Louis.

Sounds like that you were lucky to get it so quiet. As those light fittings on the columns? Actually I think there are light on them and what I think are loudspeakers.
Ayush Basu: Yes, Alan, you are correct.
A chance visit to this place.

This is some honour to be able to visit this place, a wonderful picture and so much to see.
Ayush Basu: Thank you. I liked this place too, Astrid.
Nice design work...
Ayush Basu: I agree, Larry.
I love the decor or mosques - the carpets in particular!
Ayush Basu: Yes, indeed. The carpets are a common feature of all the mosques that I have ever visited, although some are just functional.

This is quite beautiful and nicely captured.
Ayush Basu: Thank you. I liked this place too, Beth.
What? Are those speakers or lamps?
They need even more speakers more in this mosque? I don't usually see so many speakers arranged in such way...
Ayush Basu: They are speakers indeed, LC. I suppose the volume settings are not too high or perhaps not all are used at the same time?
i love the architecture and decor of the walls and floor Ayush... but i don't like the ultra modern light stands....petersmile
Ayush Basu: They do not go very well together, Peter.
