HISTORY™ Highlights Malaysia’s Stunning Mosques
PUTRAJAYA, 27 August 2015:Tourism Malaysia is embarking on a Global TV advertising campaign through the ‘My Mosque’ programme on HISTORY™ to showcase the many magnificent mosques around the country. It is also an effort to highlight the architectural wonders and beauty of Malaysian mosques to foreign travellers, particularly those in Southeast Asia, regardless of race, language, and religion.
In this 12-part series of 30-minute each on Astro Channels 555 and 575, HISTORY™ travels around Malaysia on a spiritual and patriotic voyage to some of Malaysia’s most stunning mosques. From the multicultural mosques in Melaka town, to the marvellous domes of Kelantan, ‘My Mosque’ travels through various states of Malaysia bringing these architectural icons to life.
Covering two mosques per episode, host Suzhaire Sumari will meet with the key people and learn interesting architectural and historical tidbits that make each mosque unique.
He will look inside behemoths such as Sultan Salahuddin Abdul Aziz Shah Mosque (also known as the Blue Mosque) in Shah Alam and Tuanku Mizan Zainal Abidin Mosque (The Iron Mosque) in Putrajaya, as well as marvel at the picture postcard wonders of Muhammadi Mosque Kelantan and Klang Royal Town Mosque in Selangor.
Suzhaire will also ride gondolas, take calligraphy lessons, attend Tahfiz classes, and climb up more minarets than he could have ever imagined. He will then check out the vicinity of these Islamic domes to find out what to do there and sample some of Malaysia's best food along the way.
‘My Mosque’ hopes to bring to audiences a young and imaginative look at mosque culture as seen and told through the eyes of those closest to it.
The first episode is aired today (27 Aug), featuring Tengkera Mosque and Al-Azim Mosque in Melaka. Subsequent episodes will be aired every Thursday, until 12 November 2015 (refer to the following table for further info).
