Another attraction of Bandar To Gel is the Memang Suhdah, a peninsular island just south of Singapore whose only known landmark is the 90-meter-high Mount Ngong. The island was known by the local people as “The Queen of Sheba” due to the many temples that dotted the island and are now no longer in use. There are two fishing villages on Memang Suhdah island and they provide tours to some of the best marine wildlife in the region.
In the northern part of the island, at the village of Telok Ayer, you will find the Banyak Mahal, the country’s only monument designed specifically as a mosque. After touring the various local landmarks, head over to the Telok Ayer Immigration Processing Centre. Here you will have to complete the necessary paperwork for naturalization.

At the end of the day, you can return to the village of Banyak Mahal via the Tanjung Masjid. On your way you will notice the Banyak Mahal with its white dome. Once you are inside, there is a statue depicting the Hindu god of wealth, Ganesha. The dengan is a place of worship where people pray for the well-being of their families and relatives.
