JPN Bukit Mertajam

Bukit Mertajam is the capital of Central Seberang Perai, Penang, Malaysia. It is commonly known as BM among its locals. It is located nearby Kulim, Kedah.

It is administered by the Seberang Perai Municipal Council (Majlis Perbandaran Seberang Perai or MPSP in Malay). MPSP is one of the few municipal councils in Malaysia which administers more than one district. MPSP administers all three districts on mainland Penang (also known as Province Wellesley), that is, North, Central and South Seberang Perai.

Bukit Mertajam is a fast-growing town in the Central Seberang Perai district. Due to outward expansion, Bukit Mertajam is increasingly conjoined with other subdivisions, forming an increasingly urbanised area.

There is a government general hospital in Bukit Mertajam, known as Bukit Mertajam Hospital, in the old town of Bukit Mertajam. Nearby the hospital, there is also an old but still in use KTM railway station.

The historical St. Anne's Church is situated in Bukit Mertajam. The original chapel was built in 1846, by the French priest, Father Adolphe Couellan. The chapel was dedicated to Saint Anne, who is a very popular patron saint amongst the French.

Bukit Mertajam High School (established 18 January, 1927) is one of the oldest schools in Malaysia. BM High School is also the alma mater of figures such as the fifth Prime Minister Tun Abdullah Ahmad Badawi and former Deputy Prime Minister Dato' Seri Anwar bin Ibrahim.
