Opened in 2008, the Islamic Civilization Park treats visitors to the perfect mix of education and entertainment. Five interactive monuments and 21 replicas of the world’s most iconic Islamic structures pay homage to the influence of this culture and its people all across the globe. From the Al-Hambra Citadel in Spain to the Taj Mahal in India, visitors can take an international tour without leaving Terengganu. The 23-hectares park also includes a beautiful Crystal Mosque, constructed with crystal shine glass and reflective steel panels. Though many of the international replicas are still under construction, visitors say this impressive mosque still makes the park worth a trip.
The Islamic Civilization Park is stationed on Wan Man Island off the east coast of Terengganu. An express bus makes four trips a day from the Hentian Pura station in Kuala Lumpur to Kuala Terengganu. Scenic river cruises offer an alternative way to see the park and Crystal Mosque from afar.
