In a completely inconsistent corner Langkawi Islands in the village of Hutan Buloh there are two ancient graves of the Indonesian Aceh people. Acehnese still live in Indonesia on the island of Sumatra, as well as in Malaysia, and this is a fairly large nationality. These graves date back to the ancient period and are close to the local village mosque. They were discovered in 1975 by a local resident when digging a hole for the foundation of a new house. As a result, the house was not built on this site, and the graves were designated as a historical landmark, tombstones were installed here.
For tourists, this place is of little note, there is practically nothing to see. You will see only two tombstones and a table with a brief description of the history of the place. But if you are a real adventurer, then "check in" in this place rarely visited by tourists is worth it.
🕐 Working hours: around the clock.
💵 Entrance fee / tickets price: free.
🚶 How to get there: the ancient graves of Makam Purba are located in the center of the island away from the beach resorts in a village in the middle of rice fields (graves of Makam Purba on the map). You can get here by rented transport or taxi, walking is too far. You can find graves only by Navigator, the locals practically do not know this place. The only landmark for finding them is a modest signpost on a branch along Jalan Ulu Melaka road. Near the sign you need to turn into the field and drive another hundred meters. Excursions are not held here.
