When is Melaka Governor's Birthday?

Known as Hari Jadi Yang di-Pertua Negeri Melaka, it is observed on August 24th. Until 2021, it had been observed on the second Friday in October.

About Melaka Governor's Birthday

Located on the Malay Peninsula's southwest coast, Malacca is a Malaysian state that has a rich historical heritage with ancient landmarks and colonial structures.

It was here that colonial forces first made contact with Malaysia, which eventually shaped the country into its current economic and political system.

Although it was the location of one of the earliest Malay sultanates, the monarchy was abolished when the Portuguese conquered it in 1511.

The head of state is the Yang di-Pertua Negeri or Governor, rather than a Sultan.

Mohd Ali Rustam has been the Yang di-Pertua Negeri Melaka since June 2020. His birthday is on August 24th.

For many years, the date of this holiday was honorific and didn't change with each governor. The date of the second Friday of October was established during the rule (1975 - 1984) of Syed Zahiruddin, the 4th governor of Malacca.
