It is a rural community located midway between Alor Setar and Sungai Petani. Guar Chempedak comes from two words, in which Guar means 'hilly land' and Chempedak or cempedak is a name of a fruit that is believed to be widely available here in any season.

It was where the tragic 1989 Kedah Madrasah fire occurred.
