Kuala Muda is a small fishing village located at the mouth of Sungai Muda.
Since ancient times, Kuala Muda is one of Kedah's most important ports.
There is a fort at Kuala Muda, called Kota Kuala Muda, which was built in the 18th century.
Kota Kuala Muda continued to flourish after the British occupied Penang Island, stimulated by the rise in trade and prosperity of Penang. In 1811 Sultan Ahmad Tajuddin made Kuala Muda his residence, to escape increasing pressure from the Thai. When the Thais invaded Kedah in 1821, he was still living in Mudla Muda. Eventually, however, he went into exile in PenangThe Thais occupied Kedah for 21 years. During this time the economy of Kedah suffered under their rule, and the glory days of Kuala Muda as a significant port came to an end.
Kuala Muda was one of the areas badly hit by the December 2004 tsunami. As a result of the tsunami, over 4000 people had to be evacuated and placed in temporary shelter in 8 schools.Getting to Kuala Muda
