Rainy Days...and TTI

It has been raining and raining and raining these past few days. Actually the rainy season started about a month ago and we do have sunny days once in a while; like on Eidul Adha, Alhamdulillah. Some people may find rainy days like these depressing but some like me may find it 'invigorating' somewhat. The days are cooler and refreshing to the senses. Of course, too much rain bring floods and destruction but curiously enough, people in the East Coast deem the monsoon season as a time for festivities and actually look forward to it! Hard to believe, but there you are.
Anyway, about 2 weeks ago the daughter came to KT as she had completed her 5th semester and wanted to spend sometime with us before she commerce with her practical early December (which is today actually). It is fortunate that the Friday when we took her to the Taman Tamaddun Islam (Islamic Heritage Park) the day started clear although rather cloudy. However, after about an hour there it started to drizzle and pour... Nevertheless, the Park is quite a remarkable place to visit actually. There are replicas of mosques from all over the world, including the Taj Mahal... Very impressive. Here are some pics, although we didn't manage to look at all of them in detail (due to the rain):

This is the Kubbah As-Sakhrah of Baitul Muqqaddis, Palestin (from afar)...
You can even enter it and see the 'hanging rock'...
Another view of the Dome
I think this is the Badshahi Mosque in Lahore, Pakistan

Another view?
This one is Al-Haram Mosque from afar:

The Taj Mahal...
Kudus Minar, Central Java, Indonesia
Another view of the above...
Of course there are many more to see in the park, so if you ever come to KT, you must come for a visit. I think it's worth the RM10 entrance fee (of course try to come when it's not the monsoon season and you may enjoy it even more!)
