Officially opened in 1912, this state Masjid is an architectural landmark as it is one of the largest and one of the oldest Masjids in Malaysia.

 

Built in the tradition of the Moorish architecture, it has numerous arches and columns that are an epitome of grandeur.

It was opened in 1912, and incorporates elegant Moorish designs in its five black domes and slender minarets. The design was inspired by the vision of the late Sultan Muhammad Jiwa Zainal Abidin II.

 

The state of Kedah's reading competition is held in the premises of the Masjid. The competitors are reading than from the Koran.
