Also known as City Mosque, the floating mosque is located at Pasir Road on the shores of Likas Bay. Costing RM34 million, the preparations for the mosque began in 1989, and the installation of foundation piles began in 1992. However, the construction was delayed between 1993 and 1994 due to lack of fund. Tucked on a 14.83-acre (6.00 ha) land, the architectural design is based on the Nabawi Mosque in Madinah, Saudi Arabia. This mosque has a prayer hall which houses three madrasahs and can accommodate from 9, 000 to 12, 000 worshippers at a time. Open for public visits daily except Fridays from 8am to 5pm, there is no admission fee being charged. Surrounded by a man made lagoon which gives a serenely gorgeous and dramatic look to the mosque especially on a full moon night, it is by far the largest mosque in the city and possibly the most beautiful one in Malaysia.
