Upon reaching Alor Setar we immediately head for the main mosque at the centre of town.
This is a very beautiful mosque but I can't remember ever visiting it at night...
After taking a shower at the restroom it's time to roam and look around.
But first let's have a look at the mosque from main front. The opening pictures were taken from a rather obscure part...
It is from this front that passers-by often enjoy the view of this beautiful mosque. It is the view everyone can't see while driving up the main street in front.
Oh. Did I tell you the mosque is called Masjid (mosque of) Zahir? It is also the royal mosque of Kedah.
By then people were waiting for the Isyaq prayers, the last of the 5 obligatory prayers prescribed to Muslims for a day.
Now I've been to this mosque many times but like I said before I can't remember visiting it at night.
This time I found out there's another section in front.
