The Crystal Mosque and the Islamic Civilisation Park
Save it for a slow day
What we say:
If you continue on passed the National Museum, the road curves round to the right and eventually deposits you at the Taman Tamadun Islam (Islamic Civilisation Park) or TTI.
The Islamic Civilisation Park is a theme park-type attraction that has scale models of a number of Islamic monuments from across Malaysia and around the world. Primarily designed as an outing for families with children, it is of passing interest only -- especially given the admission is a rather steep 20 ringgit.
The Crystal Mosque is a large glass-faceted mosque sitting over the waters of the Terengganu River. It is pretty enough and warrants a photo or two, but we're not sure it is worth the trip. If you do a boat trip, they'll take you right by here.
Don't make the mistake we did and assume you have to pay the 20 ringgit to reach the Crystal Mosque -- you don't. Just head right from the ticket office and keep going. There is no admission to the mosque, though appropriate clothing is required.
