Exquisite Miniatures @ Islamic Civilization Park, Terengganu

The Islamic Civilization Park (TTI) is one of Terengganu's newest attractions situated on Pulau Wan Man Island in the estuary of the Terengganu River. (The Islamic Civilization Park (TTI) was one of the place I want to visit few years back when I saw the beautiful pictures from my ex-course mates. Well, I believes some of you have visited it before me. To those who haven't, make this place into your must visit places, you will be amazed with all these replica which almost 100% similar to the real buildings.)


Taj Mahal, India
The park is colourful mosaic marked by 23 exquisite miniatures of famous mosques, monuments and a working replica of a waterwheel showcasing the grandeurs of Islamic arts and architecture. Among the facilities here are the souvenir shops, restaurant, a recreational lake, a commercial area and a convention centre. Audio visual presentations and signage focusing on heritage and history provides interesting informative tours.
