This is the first I set foot into the Melaka Straits Mosque. It provides an amazing experience. My family and I took the opportunity to pray here.My children were so excited by the beauty of the mosque "in the sea".We took the opportunity to take photos.
State Government of Melaka has built a Mosque at the coast of Selat Melaka in Bandar Hilir. Located at a man-made island named Pulau Melaka (Island of Melaka) is the one and only mosque built at the coast of the Strait and at the water level of the sea. It will look like floating if the water level is high / tide happen. The Mosque or known as ‘Masjid Selat’, costing about MYR10 Million. The opening ceremony was done on 24th November 2006 by the Supreme Ruler of Malaysia (King) – Yang Dipertuan Agong Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin Syed Putra Jamalullail.
