This is the tomb of Mahsuri, the lady whose legend surrounds this island. Within the compound there is a well and a traditional styled house with padi fields surrounding it and mountains in the distance. Don't go out of your way to visit this site but if you have the time it can be part of your sightseeing on this... More

Entrance fee for non-Malaysian is quite pricey. This is just another historical place to visit in Langkawi if you have the interest to.

I am sorry, but this is one of the places you can skip visiting in Langkawi. Nothing much to see here. Mahsuri's legend? You can find more information on the internet than this place, really!

Overrated. Nothing at this place except for a tomb. Historically its been said the lady in the tomb (Mahsuri) made a curse that langkawi would be doomed for 7 centuries. Albeit its above 7th century now, it made less development there except of some government maintained fund. Back to the tomb, a ticket to visit this tomb (grave of a... More

This is the place to know about Mahsuri's legends and beyond. Situated in the middle of the island, Mahsuri's Tomb is a place where you can learn more about the mysteries and stories that befall upon the innocent Mahsuri. However...the admission is a bit expensive.

Had lunch just down the road, so thought we would visit this place whilst in the area. Very popular with Malaysian tourists, and struggled to find somewhere to park, but after a while parked up and entered. After the initial ' photo opportunity next to old rickshaw' and weaving way through lots of shops and cafes we reached the tomb,... More
