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

Very comfortable and serene place.. the mahsuri village and house is just amazing... a must visit for anyone who wants to understand the history of Langkawi.. the cultural musical show, displays and videos are simply amazing and informative..

No comment on this spot (the tomb of Mahsuri) because i had the feeling everything was artificial but i still believe langkawi is a tropical jewel not to miss when you are in malaysia.

Lots of legends and stories but this place is rather boring. Some Malay houses and some stories to go with a tomb.

The whole purpose of visiting this place is the tomb, which is well maintained, and the museum that had Mahsuri's story was not too bad. Otherwise, nothing much. There is a mythical well, and that too seem to have been commercialized—there is a small stall next to it selling the water from the well.

It's a small museum exhibiting the history of Mahsuri. It's an interesting place but nothing much to do there. Inside was quite old. Sometimes, there is a local band performing local music and it's nice. Anyways, it's quite good to check this place out.

We came not expecting much as most museums are normally not well managed or lack of information. But interestingly we had a good time learning about the history of Mahsuri and her famous tale. It was sad that most exhibits were poorly kept and some information were not provided in English. I hope they do better in keeping the exhibits... More

There's entrance fee of rm10. They display mahsuri's story and traditional exhibit. Interesting attraction includes the rumah kedah used to be mahsuri's house. Other than that,nothing much. Try laksa for lunch wit good view of paddy field.
