JPN Jitra

Jitra is a town in Kedah, Malaysia. It is located in the Kubang Pasu district. It is the fourth largest town in Kedah after Alor Setar, Sungai Petani and Kulim.

During World War 2, when The Japanese attacked Malaya, Jitra was on the one of main lines of defence set up by the British. One of the fiercest battles during the British defence of Malaya were fought here.

A few famous landmarks in Jitra are Darulaman Park, Jitra Waterfront (behind police quarters), Rocky Dog Park, Lye Huat Garden (Mini Zoo), Joe's Ais Kacang stall and Bukit Wang, a recreational park.

Located approximately 30 kilometers from Thailand border, Jitra becomes one of the many stops for tourists who came from the neighboring country or Malaysian who wanted to visit Thailand.

Not far from the town, a project located at Paya Pahlawan was developed in 2003. This project promotes the concept of frozen food industries with Kedah Halal Food Hub (KHFH) as its main distributor.

A complex for slaughtering cows was built and it is equipped with slaughter house and cold storage that can store meat up to 1500 ton at a time. This center can cover up to 30 percent of Malaysia's need for beef, which comes in handy especially during Malaysia's many festivals such as Hari Raya Aidilfitri and Hari Raya Qurban.
