Al-Bukhari Masjid

Masjid Albukhary, Albukhary Mosque


Masjid Albukhary, or Albukhary Mosque, is one of the newest and most impressive landmarks in Alor Setar, Kedah. It was built by Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Albukhary, a local entrepreneur who made it big in the lorry business. Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar, of Yemeni descent, is the third of seven siblings born into a poor family so impoverished that their home did not have a bed, table or chair.

Masjid Albukhary is part of Kompleks Albukhary, a sprawling Islamic centre which includes a medical centre, a community centre, an orphanage, a senior citizen academy and a centre for higher learning. The project is developed by Yayasan Albukhary, or the Albukhary Foundation. Next to Komplek Albukhary is another project developed by Yayasan Albukhary, the Souq Albukhary.
