Geocache Description:

This cache is placed in order to show one of the most famous mosque in Penang, Tanjung Bungah. It's a nano magnetic cache, outside the mosque.

Masjid Terapung or Floating Mosque of Tanjung Bungah is a big Malay mosque built at the bay in Tanjung Bungah. Despite its name, the mosque is not floating, but rather standing on pilings and stilts. Nevertheless it is the first mosque to be built in the sea in Malaysia (other floating mosques in Malaysia have so far been built on lakes). The Tanjung Bungah Floating Mosque was built at the cost of 15 million and covers an area of 1295 sq meters. It also has a towering minarets, the height of a seven-storey building, where the call of azan can be announced. To ensure no undue congestion along the narrow Tanjung Bungah main road, a big parking space was also built for the mosque. It can accommodate up to 250 cars. The mosque itself has a capacity of 1500 worshippers. The Masjid Terapung Tanjung Bungah is easily accessible from the Tanjung Bungah main road. It is located on the opposite side of the road from the Mar Vista Condominiums. Rapid Penang Buses Nos. 101, 103 and U104 goes to Tanjung Bungah (U104 may require some walking, as it goes to Tanjung Bungah village). Check details at the Rapid Penang Bus Routes. ----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------- free counters
