  • House of 1st malaysia prime minister. Feeling like very nostalgic
  • This historical building used to be the residence of Tunku Abdul Rahman Putra, Malaysia's first Prime Minister. The house was the premier's private retreat whenever he returned to Kedah. Equipped with audio visual aids, the house exhibits the original furniture, photographs, personal effects and souvenirs of the beloved statesman. It was here that Tunku pursued his creative writing, entertained foreign dignitaries and organised successful election strategies.
