Located in Kubang Kerian, just 5 kilometres from Kota Bharu, Masjid Sultan Ismail Petra was named after the former Sultan of Kelantan, Sultan Ismail Petra Ibni Almarhum Sultan Yahya Petra, who officiated the mosque in 1992.
The mosque is arguably the largest mosque in Kelantan. Following the architectural style of Middle Eastern mosques, the mosque features a pure white façade and large arched glass windows running along the top part of its walls for maximum utilisation of daylight as a source of natural lighting. Dark blue domes topped with crescent-moon sky pointers adorn its roof and four tall minarets. The mosque’s most outstanding feature sits within its prayer hall, in the form of a majestic pulpit made out of white marble.
