Makam Kerabat Diraja Kedah

 

The Kedah Royal Mausoleum is part of Kedah's Malay Sultanate heritage. This mausoleum was founded by Almarhum Tunku Sulaiman Ibni Almarhum Sultan Abdullah Mukarram Shah before 1821. On 12 November 1821, Armada Siam from Ligur invaded and conquered Kedah. Sultan Ahamd Tajuddin Halim Shah II, the Sultan of Kedah at the time, fled from his house in Pulau Tiga to this area and was rescued by his younger brother Tunku Sulaiman before seeking protection from the British in Penang. This area has been designated as an endowment land by the British.
