Wat Nikrodharam

Wat Nikrodharam is located not far away from the Alor Setar Tower. The wat surrounding is very spacious and some of the statues are very much similar to the temples that we saw in Chiang Mai. The unique statue design is what we appreciate.

Mahathir’s Birth House

Mahathir’s Birth House is a very good destination to visit as to learn more about the living style of the 4th Prime Minister of Malaysia. Unfortunately, no photo shooting is allowed in the house. The house is a typical Malay traditional house. There are 2 galleries located near the house, one of the galleries displays the family background of the PM while the other one displays some of the arts and the roadmap to become a prime minister.
