Semasa ke Langkawi 1hb Mei baru2 ni sempat bermalam di Alor Setar,Kedah D.N.
Sempat lalu dihadapan Masjid Zahir (Masjid Negeri) di waktu petang
..dan sempat bersolat subuh berjamaah sebelum ke Langkawi.
The mosque was built in 1912, a contributory effort of YTM Tunku Mahmud Ibni Almarhum Sultan Tajuddin Mukarram Shah. The site of this mosque was the cemetery of Kedah warriors who had died while defending Kedah from the Siamese in 1821. The architecture of the mosque was inspired by the Azizi Mosque  in Tanjung Pura, Langkat Sultanate (present-day North Sumatra). This mosque is enhanced with five prime large domes symbolizing the Five Pillars of Islam
