Mahsuri was the most beautiful woman in Langkawi and was admired by the village chief who wanted to marry her. However, the chiefs opposed the thought and soon Mahsuri married a soldier who had to leave for the Siamese war. While her husband was away, Mahsuri gave a story-teller shelter. The jealous wife of the king wanted Mahsrui to be punished and started a rumour that Mahsuri was an adulterer. Soon the whole village accused her for adultery and she was hung to a pole and tortured.

Upon stabbing her with her Father’s Keris, white blood oozed from the gash -signifying that she was innocent. Before her final breath, Mahsuri cursed that the village would have bad luck for 7 generations and that is exactly what happened post the Siamese war.

Today the tomb constructed in her memory along with the nearby cultural centre, keep the story of Mahsuri alive. This historical tomb site houses Mahsuri’s shrine, and a fenced-in white slab of marble that stands alone in a shady garden. You can also see a reconstructed Malay House here, a theatre and a ‘diorama museum’ exhibiting some of Mahsuri’s jewelry and the weapon that were used to execute her.

  • Historical place...but part of it is under renovation...not so happy with it but really enjoy when we r welcome with the caklempong....love it

  • enjoy the tour inside here.. well maintained n need to pay if u want to get inside..

  • Need to buy ticket for enter. Nothing very interesting for local. Few Malay traditional houses and so-called tombstone of Mahsuri.

  • The place looks unkept and uncontrolled with uncollected garbage. Lots of herbal shops selling traditional liniment oils including sex oil for men. Other shops sells local batik sarongs and t-shirts and local tidbits. There are rows of external food joints, usually open for breakfast and lunch.

  • A Historic & legendery icon of Langkawi that cursed Langkawi for seven decendent because of wrongly accuessed and was sentenced to death. interesting about the place not just the legend but it showcasing on the Langkawi kampung life and the peoples activities century ago. for those who interested to know about the history of Langkawi you should visit here to learn more.
