The park is a colourful mosaic marked by 22 miniature replicas of famous mosques and monuments from the Islamic countries showcasing the grandeurs of Islamic arts and architectures. The island is divided into two zones. Zone 1 housed the 22 miniature mosques and monuments, souvenir shops, restaurant by the river and a recreational lake. Audio visual presentations and signage of the heritage and history provides interesting information for visitors. Zone 2 housed a commercial centre, a convention centre, a main square and an Islamic concept garden. Tucked at the tip of the island is the glittering Crystal Mosque. Majestically constructed with crystal shine glass and steel overlooking the scenic Terengganu River, it is the iconic splendour and pride of Terengganu. The breathtaking view of the park with its colourful lightings of the mosques and monuments seen from the Terengganu Bridge is picture perfect with panoramic background, especially during sunset that add to the lustrous colour of nature at its best.
It only seems natural that the magnificent Crystal Mosque, with its foundation in the water provides a floating illusion. The close proximity to the water provides reflections to the glass walls, minarets and domes, thus creates a prismatic and radiant exterior. The luminescent exterior reflects charm and the vibrant heritage and idyllic nature that surround it. The Islamic Civilization Park is set to become the preferred destination in Malaysia and indeed the world. Built on a 22.3 ha site of an uninhibited Pulau Wan Man, in the Terengganu River estuary, the new landmark is luring visitors of all ages.
