High Court




This building is located at the junction of the Jalan Putera, adjacent to the Balai Nobat. Initially, this court building was the place for the existing Balai Seni which was earlier called the "High Court".

As engraved on a marble slab at one corner of the court, this building was built on Rabiulawal 1341 Hijrah equivalent to November 1922. Names of those who were responsible for the construction of the court were: HRH Sultan Abdul Hamid Halim Shah (Regent), W. Peel Esq (British Adviser), Major W.R. Sanguinetti, O.B.E.M.C (State Engineer), F.W. Wade Esq. A.I.R.B. (Architect) and H.W. Fofden Esq (Contractor).

Looking at the architectural design it clearly shows that this building has more characteristics of Roman architectural. This can be seen by the design of the columns that are close to one another without regard of spaces for whatever purposes. Various types of carvings are found on the walls. At the top area close to the roof was placed the crest of the State of Kedah.

Masjid Zahir (Zahir State Mosque)
This mosque was built in 1912, a contributory effort of YTM Tunku Mahmud Ibni Almarhum Sultan Tajuddin Mukarram Shah. The site of this mosque before it was built was the cemetery of the Kedah warriors who had died while defending Kedah from Siamese (1821). The architecture of the mosque was inspired by the AZIZI Mosque in Langkat town, north Sumatera. This mosque is enhanced with five prime large domes symbolizing the five Islamic principles.

Its official launching ceremony was held on Friday, 15 October 1915 by the late HRH Sultan Abdul Hamid Shah. Tunku Mahmud read the Friday sermon while HRH Sultan Abdul Hamid Shah led the Friday prayer. At the back of the Zahir Mosque, is the Syariah Court building complex and the Centre for Basic Education for Children.

The Zahir Mosque occupies a site of approximately 124,412 square feet. Its center hall (Prayer Hall) measures 62 x 62 square feet and surrounded by verandahs of 8 feet wide with 4 mezzanine areas of each has a dome. The main dome is located at the north-east of the mosque building. It is one of the grandest and oldest mosques in Malaysia.

Muzium Diraja Kedah (The Kedah Royal Museum)





This building which originated from the Kota Setar Palace is a wooden building that was built by HRH Sultan Muhammad Jiwa Zainal Adilin Muazzam Shah, the 19th Sultan of Kedah (1710-1778), who was the founder of Alor Star town in 1735. This building had undergone demolitions several times due to attacks by the Bugis (1770) and Siamese (1821).

The concrete building was completed during the reign of HRH Sultan Ahmad Tajuddin Mukarram Shah (1854-1879). His Royal Highness had once stayed in this palace with his queen, Wan Hajar Wan Ismail who was also known as "Mak Wan Besar". Therefore, this palace is also known as the "Mak Wan Besar Palace".

YTM Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra was also born adjacent to this palace (the Pagoda building, which no longer exist today) on 8 February 1903 and once grew up in this palace while his father the late HRH Sultan Abdul Hamid and his mother Mak Che Manjalara resided there.

This palace is also renowned as the "Pelamin Palace" when the space of the palace was extended to as a pavilion and additional rooms when HRH Sultan Abdul Hamid Halim Shah wanted to marry off his five princes and princesses. This grand wedding ceremony lasted for three months in 1904. After 1941, this palace was used as a school and an office for several organizations including the office for the St. John and the Scout movements. On 25 July 1983, this palace was declared the "Kedah Royal Museum".

Menara Alor Star (Alor Star Tower)




Located in the heart of Alor Setar, this tower, standing at 165.5 metres tall is a prominent and modern landmark that signifies the rapid development in the state of Kedah. It functions as both a telecommunications tower and a tourist attraction.

From the tower, you will see vast expanses of paddy fields which lies outside of Alor Star - an amazing view especially during harvest time. It's the second tallest tower in Malaysia and ranked 19th in world.

Mount Jerai





Gunung Jerai is the highest point in this northern part of the peninsula. There is a little hill resort at the top which can be accessed by a 13km road. The mountain has ideal trekking routes with fascinating waterfalls, plants and birds to be seen."





Standing majestically 1,200m above sea level, it is the highest point in this northern part of the peninsula. Known previously as Kedah Peak, Gunung Jerai used to be a landmark for seafaring merchants of yesteryears.

Legend narrates much about the mountain as its foothill area, Lembah Bujang (Bujang Valley), was once a dwelling place of Raja Bersiung (the King with Fangs). Visitors will experience peace and tranquility atop this mountain while admiring its natural surroundings especially the spectacular view of vast paddy fields.

A 13km road which winds its way up the mountain leads to a hill resort from where you can have a spectacular view. For those interested to know about the natural vegetation on Gunung Jerai, check out the Muzium Perhutanan (Forestry Museum) which displays many various species of wood from the Gunung Jerai forest.


For the adventurous, a brisk 4-hour hike is a rewarding experience that will allow the trekkers to get a closer look at the mountain's unique flora and its numerous bird species that live there.

The foot of Gunung Jerai also has several waterfalls that attract many locals who go there to bathe and picnic.

Pusat pelancongan Gunung Jerai dibangun semula
Oleh Johari Ibrahim


Kerajaan Kedah sedia peruntukan RM35 juta majukan lokasi tanah tinggi,Sungai Merbok dan Lembah Bujang bermula April

SUNGAI PETANI: Kerajaan negeri memperuntukkan RM35 juta untuk membangunkan semula lokasi pelancongan tanah tinggi di puncak Gunung Jerai dan sebuah hotel miliknya di sini.

Menteri Besar, Datuk Seri Mahdzir Khalid, berkata kawasan puncak Gunung Jerai akan dibangunkan semula bermula April ini bagi menyediakan lokasi pelancongan kepada pengunjung.

"Ia akan dibangunkan dalam dua fasa termasuk mengubahsuai chalet dan persekitaran puncak gunung itu dan dijangka siap sebelum Tahun Melawat Kedah 2008," katanya kepada pemberita di sini kelmarin.

Beliau berkata kerajaan negeri pada dasarnya bersetuju dengan pelan pembangunan yang dikemukakan oleh Kedah Resort Sdn Bhd, anak syarikat Perbadanan Kemajuan Negeri Kedah, untuk pembangunan semula itu.

"Pembangunan Gunung Jerai dan hotel itu adalah bersekali dengan pembangunan Sungai Merbok dan Lembah Bujang yang dapat menyediakan lokasi lawatan kepada pelancong," katanya.

Sebelum ini, kerajaan mengumumkan peruntukan sebanyak RM15 juta untuk pembangunan Sungai Merbok dan Lembah Bujang.

Kawasan berkenaan adalah tapak sejarah Kedah lama yang kini diberikan jolokan sebagai "tapak tamadun harmoni" pada kurun ke-12 yang menunjukkan kehidupan penganut Islam dan Hindu di kaki Gunung Jerai itu.

Kerajaan negeri juga mencadangkan supaya kajian akademik dilakukan bagi mengesahkan bahawa agama Islam tiba di Lembah Bujang lebih dulu daripada Melaka.

Mengulas mengenai laporan fokus Berita Harian kelmarin mengenai chalet dan lokasi pelancongan puncak Gunung Jerai yang terbiar, Mahdzir berkata ia akan diatasi menerusi pembangunan semula itu.

Bagaimanapun, katanya, pengurusan pusat pelancongan itu juga perlu bertanggungjawab kerana tidak mementingkan penyenggaraan.

Tree Top Walk
Oleh Azmi Md Deros


Kanopi Sungai Sedim terpanjang di dunia dengan ketinggian 50 meter dari paras bumi paling unik

MUNGKIN tidak ramai di antara kita yang tahu di mana letaknya laluan kanopi atau Tree Top Walk terpanjang di dunia. Pasti ramai yang mengagak ia terletak sama ada di Australia, Amerika Syarikat atau Eropah yang biasanya mempunyai banyak destinasi paling unik dan menarik di dunia.



Namun tekaan itu silap kerana ia sebenarnya terletak di Malaysia, atau lebih spesifik lagi di Sedim, Kulim, iaitu satu daerah di selatan Kedah. Dibina mulai awal 2004 dan siap pada 2005, Tree Top Walk sepanjang 925 meter itu yang mula dibuka kepada pengunjung sejak pertengahan 2006 mempunyai keunikan tersendiri apabila laluan kanopi dibina menggunakan struktur besi tahan karat menyerupai jambatan dan mempunyai tiang.

Berbeza daripada jambatan gantung di tempat lain yang biasa diikat pada pokok, laluan kanopi ini lebih teguh menampung beban, sekali gus menjamin keselamatan pengunjung yang bersiar-siar di atasnya sambil menikmati kehijauan hutan khatulistiwa dan penghuninya.

Jika bernasib baik, kita dapat melihat pelbagai jenis burung daripada saiz kecil sehingga besar, iaitu helang dan enggang, selain pelbagai jenis monyet dan kijang.

Pengalaman bersiar-siar sambil menghirup udara segar pada paras paling tinggi, iaitu 26.9 meter dari paras hutan atau kira-kira 50 meter dari paras bumi amat menyeronokkan dan memberi pengalaman baru bagi setiap orang.



Dengan kadar RM10 bagi dewasa dan RM6 bagi kanak-kanak berusia lebih tujuh tahun, bayaran itu tidak begitu membebankan, berbanding keseronokan dan pengalaman berharga yang diperoleh di laluan kanopi itu.

Malah, destinasi itu boleh menjadi pencetus bagi kita untuk memupuk semangat cintakan keindahan alam semula jadi yang semakin terancam oleh pembangunan di negara ini.

Berbanding berjalan mengikut trek atau meredah hutan, pengunjung yang melalui Tree Top Walk ibarat seekor burung yang mampu melihat pemandangan sekeliling dari atas yang lebih meluas.

Ia menjadi satu lagi aset berharga eko-pelancongan yang mampu dijual
