Masjid Selat Melaka is known as the floating mosque due to being located on the man-made Malacca Island. The mosque is constructed with modern Islamic design and craftsmanship; the main dome has a Middle Eastern appearance. Its striking and unusual design, plus the fact that it is floating, creates a compelling view, especially in the morning and dusk.

Location: Jalan Pulau Melaka 8, 75000 Melaka
