Islamic Civilisation theme park in Terengganu

This is Terengganu’s latest icon: A local ferry fondly known as ‘Bot Penambang’ adorned with Barisan Nasional and Umno flags cruising along Sungai Terengganu passing the Crystal Mosque at Pulau Wan Man in Kuala Terengganu yesterday.

The new Islamic Civilisation theme park was declared open by Prime Minister, Datuk Seri Abdullah Ahmad Badawi. The theme park is open to all, including non-Muslims. (Frankly, I can't imagine a public park that's out of bounds to anyone by virtue of his race or religion. It's unthinkable in this time and age!)

The 23ha park features replicas of 12 mosques, the Al-Hambra of Spain and Taj Mahal of India and is a project under the East Coast Economic Region (ECER).

It's "Visit Terengganu Year" this year.

  1. But, but Terengganu is so so so far away!!!

  2. Yeah! Two months in summer should do it! Most definitely!

  3. UMNO is trying to outdo PAS in terms of Islamization. I'm worried by this trend...

  4. Which goes to show that the Constitution is not being adhered to. Malaysia is a secular society and religion has no place in politics. We are digging our own grave! Are we going to let ourselves be buried alive?
