About Melaka Straits Mosque

This Melaka Straits Mosque is also known as Malacca's floating mosque. It is established on stilts above the sea. It was officially opened by Malaysia's King on 24th November 2006. It is constructed with modern Islamic design and craftsmanship. While the main dome is Middle Eastern in appearance, the four corner turrets are topped with typical Malaysian rooflines.

It is beautiful during morning or dusk light, this gold-domed mosque gazes dreamily at the Strait of Melaka from its shoreside perch on an artificial island a short taxi ride or bicycle pedal from central Melaka City. Completed in 2006, the mosque's grand archways are panelled with stained glass. When water levels are high, it appears to float.

Non-Muslim visitors are permitted provided they dress modestly and heed the 'no shoe' signs around different parts of this large complex. Women must bring a scarf or use a rental shawl to cover their head.
