About Merbok


Merbok is a small town located in Kuala Muda, Kedah, and is about 23km from the town of Sungai Petani. Formerly a small fisherman’s settlement, the area has since expanded and become more developed. Various facilities and amenities have been added to the town for the benefit and convenience of the local community, as well as turning the town into a popular tourist attraction. The name ‘Merbok’ was believed to be from the archaic Langkasuka-Malay language, meaning “the declaratory place”. Based on the ancient Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa, the declaration of Islam as the state religion of Kedah was conducted at the Merbok estuary port close to the state’s capital, Bukit Meriam. Some of the popular landmarks and places of interest in Merbok include the Merbok Public Library, MPSPK monument, and the Bujang Valley Archeology Museum. The town is also home to the Universiti Teknologi MARA Kedah campus. To get around, residents can use the public transportation available, which are mostly bus and taxi services.
