Mahsuri Complex

Mahsuri Tomb (Mahsuri Mausoleum, Makam Mahsuri and Kota Mahsuri) is a whole ethnographic complex and museum about the life of the inhabitants of the island, based on history or The Legend of the girl Mahsuri and The Curse of the island. Mahsuri was the most beautiful girl in Langkawi, but because of jealousy and envy of her beauty was executed by the locals. For this, she cursed the island and its inhabitants, bringing misery and misery upon them for seven generations.

Here you can not only learn in detail about this legend (or real history, who knows), but also see the traditional village house-museum, the Mahsuri House (of course, recreated), the tomb itself. There is a well Mahsuri, which according to legend never dries up, and if you wash in it, you will find good luck and prosperity. You can also get acquainted with traditional crafts and Arts: at certain times on the schedule there are traditional performances, music and dances. There is even a mini-zoo, and, of course, souvenir shops. The place is beautiful and calm, and just a must-visit. In fact, this is the only attraction on the island where you can at least learn something about local life and culture, although entertainment and information here, of course, is not enough.

🕐 Working hours: from 08: 30 to 18: 00, seven days a week.

💵 Entrance fee / tickets price: Adult-17 ringgit / child-7 ringgit.

🚶   How to get there: Mahsuri's tomb is located in the center of the island away from the beaches on Jalan Makam Mahsuri Street (Mahsuri tomb on the map). The easiest way to get here is as part of a sightseeing tour of Langkawi, many of which include this place in the route. A taxi ride from the nearest beaches will cost about 20 ringgit (see currency of Malaysia, exchange rate).
