    Is Kuala Terengganu’s Crystal Mosque Now Abandoned?

    Malaysia has some of the most magnificent architectures in the world. Unfortunately, many have been left abandoned and unmaintained.

    All these abandoned architectural sites are often brought up after a few years by netizens, just like the MAPS Theme Park in Ipoh. This time around, the Crystal Mosque in Terengganu has been making rounds on social media.

    Recently, a Twitter user, Aazmeer (@aazmeeriskndr) posted a picture of the used-to-be-famous Crystal Mosque in Terengganu that is now apparently abandoned. The picture was an aerial view of the mosque with a majestic golden sunset overlooking it. Despite looking untended and rusted in some parts, it was still picturesque, especially the crystal domes.

    He captioned the picture with “Save the best for last. The sunset earlier this evening was as beautiful. The Abandoned Mosque, Masjid Kristal Terengganu.” The tweet has since gained netizens’ attention. Some said it’s not really abandoned, but just under renovation; while some stated that it has been years since the renovation sign was put up.

    The Crystal Mosque was constructed somewhere between 2006 and 2008 but was said to only be temporarily closed down for renovation. This was almost half a decade ago in 2017. The reason being? There were reportedly leaks from the roofs and the repair cost was too high, hence the repair postponement.

    What a shame that such a picturesque spot had to be closed down. We hope the government will quit abandoning sites; start investing in repairing and maintaining rather than building new ones every few years.
