About Makam Mahsuri, Langkawi Island

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.
