Raja Perlis’ Birthday is a public holiday unique to this state, with citizens of Perlis celebrating the birthday of the Raja of Perlis on May 17 each year.

The current Raja of Perlis is Tuanku Syed Sirajuddin who was appointed Raja Muda, or Crown Prince, in 1960 when he was a student. He became ruler of Perlis in April 2000 the day after his father, Tuanku Syed Putra Ibni Almarhum Syed Hassan Jamalullall, died. Unlike other royal states in Malaysia, the celebration is held on the Raja’s actual birthday.
