Taman Tamadun Edutainment Park.

Last week we visited Islamic civilization Park at Kuala Trengganu. Appreciate the beauty of Kubah As-Sakhrah where the sacred rock was enshrined and commemorates the Prophet Muhammad’s Ascension to heavens to visit Allah.

If you think you are unlikely to have a chance to visit all the famous mosques that reminisce the rise of Islam, do come to Taman Tamadun Islam in Kuala Trengganu.

Among others you’ll be able to admire the beauty of:

Saladin's son used it as a both as a residence and fortress.

Taj Mahal from the distance.

Pattani Mosque, Thailand.

Lastly, the Crystal Mosque of Trengganu. It is true the mosque was built to cater for the visitors to the park. Its quite a distance for the locals to use as a regular praying mosque.
