The Only Crystal Mosque?

Was in Kuala Terengganu, the capital city of Terengganu, here in Malaysia last November.  Had the chance visiting the only crystal mosque in Malaysia.  In fact after worldwide-web search it’s safe to say that it’s the only crystal mosque exist in the world currently.

A grand structure made of steel, glass and crystal. The mosque is located at Islamic Heritage Park on the island of Wan Man. The mosque was constructed between 2006 and 2008. It was officially opened on 8 February 2008 by 13th Yang di-Pertuan AgongSultan Mizan Zainal Abidin of Terengganu.

It has the capacity to accommodate over 700 worshipers at a time. This is one of the beautiful mosques in the world.
