OK. A search through old posts in this blogspot shows I've touched on the Kedah town of Sungai Petani in 13 previous articles. What a delightful coincidence as today is the 13th of January and while starting this writing I've got 13 website windows opened through Internet Explorer. However I've never made any article of the town itself however brief. So here's one... continuing from Revisiting the tomb of Tok Soh
From the tomb of Tok Soh I went to the town of Sungai Petani.
I was heading north and could have bypassed the town passing through its rims and sub-urbs. But I wanted to get through the centre where lies the old town...
You see there's something quaint about Sungai Petani that makes me want to spend sometime here.... if only I was not rushing to go further up north...
While the town has flourished to a size which could rival the state capital city of Alor Setar, it's centre stays rather quite with remnants from pre-world war days.
A landmark of Sungai Petani which I feel must be seen before leaving is the relatively new main mosque which was built about 14 years ago.
The huge building looks like a mosque from old Morocco. Once I've satisfied with the little time spent driving around it's time to get out of Sungai Petani and continue the journey up north.
