Sultan Abdul Halim Mu'adzam Shah Gallery is a gallery dedicated to the renowned Kedah ruler Sultan Abdul Halim ibni Almarhum Sultan Badlishah. Located in Medan Bandar, Jalan Raja within the district and state capital of Alor Setar, state of Kedah, Malaysia, the gallery was originally constructed in November 1922 as a high court building with F.W. Wade as the original architect and H.W. Fofden as the original developer.
