Aside from the magnificent Masjid Al-Bukhary, there is another mosque in Alor Setar which was also financed by Tan Sri Syed Mokhtar Al-Bukhary. Masjid Al-Ghufran sits along Jalan Pegawai and is another beautiful landmark in the city.
The mosque’s design concept was based on Middle Eastern mosques. The central dome is decorated with exquisite floral Arabesque motifs and accompanied by four smaller domes at each corner. The main difference between Masjid Al-Ghufran and Masjid Al-Bukhary is the position of their minarets – instead of incorporated into the design of the main building, the former’s minaret stands separated from the main building at one side.
