Alor Setar Heritage Trail


A good place to start your Alor Setar Heritage Trail is at the Birthplace of Dato’ Seri Dr. Mahathir Bin Mohdmmad who was Malaysia's longest serving Prime Minister from 1981 - 2003. As Prime Minister he was sometimes controversial (in England for example he is remembered for his 'Buy British Last' policy) but there is no doubt he was an energetic and visionary leader and Malaysia's economic standing in the world improved greatly during his tenure.

It is interesting to see the humble home where he was brought up. The newer galleries next to his old home contain personal belongings and memorabilia from Dr. Mahathir's schooldays, medical career, married life and his time in politics.
