The story itself is intriguing and interesting and is so relevant to Langkawi so I think it is worth visiting for that alone. It wasn't what I was expecting, it is more touristy and busy than I expected ( even in low season), but also has more going on than I had imagined, although the exhibits are quite basic and... More

The scenic view near Mahsuri's house is stunning overseeing the paid field. The place is well-maintained.

If that is your thing.... It was a meh exhibition of the legend Mahsuri, the display looks fake, almost everything in the museum was cheesy. Nevertheless we quite enjoy the gamelan play & the kampung houses.

I think it is quite ridiculous to need to pay for an entrance fee just to see a grave.... the place was poorly maintained and I was quite confused with the place that's supposed to be 'interesting' and 'historical'. The perkampungan kedah houses was fascinating but it didn't really fascinates me.

Basically, I am interested in the history of Mahsuri. So, I just want to find out the actual area where it happened. if you like to know more, you can visit it.

I have expected so much more but was deeply disappointed. The place was poorly maintained and certainly doesn't befit the famous legend of Mahsuri. The whole place was terribly planned at the first place by getting some local actress to act as Mahsuri and it's either her picture or random plastic dummies are used throughout the place to tell the...

So we went here whilst on an island tour as I had read about the legend of Mahsuri and I was quite intrigued. What a mistake - this is a really run down tourist attraction. I was expecting the actual shrine to be a bit more elaborate considering the supposed significance of Mahsuri to Langkawi history. There is nothing there... More

I guess it's only interesting for people who are interested in the Legend of Mahsuri. Nothing much to see besides Museum, the well & some houses & the tomb itself. There are also survenior shops.

Really struggling to say anything good about this attraction. This the location of the tomb of Mahsuri - she famous for the legend of her bleeding white blood and her subsequent curse on the next 7 generations of the people of Langkawi. Maybe this complex is part of that curse! It was boring, lacking in information in English, full of... More
