Malacca, Malaysia

You are looking at the Strait of Malacca and a new mosque on its Malayan shore. Masjid Selat Melaka is the centerpiece of a new development on a new island built to give the city of Malacca some room for expansion. It has come to be known as the floating mosque because at high tide it looks like it is floating on the water. [2011]
