Monument Park

My husband and I have been talking about starting a blog for a while to post our many food and travel photos but never really got to it until today. Tonight I couldn't take it anymore after reading this cute blog, which I found via houzz. Truth be told, I'm not new to the blogging scene, having had a few blogs on and off in the past 10 years but none seem to quite 'gel'. Hopefully this one would stick around for a bit. Ok, maybe more than 'a bit'.

Alright, enough rambling. On to some photos the husband took and I edited when we visited Monument Park of Taman Tamadun Islam (Islamic Civilisation Park) last week. It was our first time there despite having lived in Terengganu for close to 2 years. The Monument Park is within walking distance to the famous landmark of Terengganu, the Crystal Mosque, as both are situated within the refreshing Islamic Civilisation Park. I say refreshing as there are not many places in Malaysia that provides a specific spot for the public to be enlightened about Islam.

The Monument Park showcases "23 great Islamic monuments that reminisce the rise of Islam into a sophisticated global religion" (TTI guidebook). It costs RM15 per adult. There are family packages too but I didn't take a photo of the signage. If you didn't get what I mean, it means that's the way I remember things now, via photos of things. Erm. Yeah.

Each visitor gets a 'passport' to enter the park. Love it!

At the exit, they would stamp your passport again to show you completed your visit. Yay!
