The sight of this mosque situated at the intersection of the main Kuala Terengganu – Kota Bharu road and Kuala Besut road is conspicuous enough you can hardly miss it. This elegant timber mosque was said to have been designed according to the old Malay mosque architectural style with its pyramidal roof called Perabung Lima. Its architecture was inspired by the Kampung Laut Mosque of Kelantan which is now located in Nilam Puri, Kelantan.

The Ulul Albab Mosque or Masjid Ulul Albab in Malay was built between 2009 and 2011. It was originally named Masjid Kayu Seberang Jerteh as it is located in Kampung Seberang Jerteh, a village across the Besut River from Jerteh town. Kampung Seberang Jerteh also happens to be my hometown where I grew up.
I first blogged about this mosque in September 2011 when it was just completed.
The Masjid Kayu Seberang Jerteh was renamed The Ulul Albab Mosque and it was officially declared by none other than His Royal Highness The Sultan of Terengganu, Sultan Mizan Zainal Abidin ibni Almarhum Sultan Mahmud Almuktafi Billah Shah when the Sultan officially opened the mosque on 24 February 2012.
All pictures of the Ulul Albab Mosque showcased here were taken on 4 May 2015 when I went back to my hometown for holiday last week. Although weather at that time was extremely hot in daytime, in the early morning I was normally blessed with beautiful deep blue sky and flattering lighting that I found it utterly hard to resist going out with my camera and taking whatever pictures that tickled my fancy.
Hope you enjoy all the pictures. More pictures of the Ulul Albab Mosque are available here.
