Owner description: The tomb of an island legend.
Reviewed March 30, 2012

Locals pay RM5 to enter Mahsuri's Mausoleum. Two places to visit, indoor has a museum telling legend of Mahsuri while outdoor has Mahsuri's tomb and some old houses of Mahsuri's family. Nothing much to see. The site is not well-maintain too. The wood houses are very old and there are some holes on the floor, watch out your steps while walking. For the museum, it would be nice if there is a guide to explain the legend, instead of reading the long story on the board.

Generally, one can visit this place if there is too much time to spend in Langkawi but most likely you'll not come back visit this place again in your future visit to Langkawi.

Well, if you're in Langkawi, you must visit Mahsuri's Tomb!
The legend/history is well documented and very touching/moving... Only RM 10 per entry or RM 5 for MyKad holders.... They even have books about the famous Mahsuri sold for RM 10... it's nice... must visit!

This was a nice enough place to visit, however is rather informal. Once you've paid entry, you can walk to the tomb (which is more a like a gravesite) or wander around the complex of wooden chalets. I'm not entirely sure what those were for though.
There is a film showing which helps you understand the story, but the entire place emphasises the fact that there are so many versions of the story, it's quite hard to know what actually happened and hence, why it's so important to the island.

To those not familiar with the Mahsuri legend, do visit the museum first to better appreciate the background and the importance it places on Langkawi.

The more memorable areas to visit in addition to the Museum is the replica of the kampung house, and the tomb itself. I wished they had put up some written explanations on the kampung house as it would be hard to understand where are the areas of the house if you had no ideas to begin with.

The tomb itself it just that, a tomb, although there are many supernatural stories for a more 'added" flavour to the site. If you are superstitius, do not take a photograph of the tomb, that is according to the locals nd my dad who "suffered" th consequence of doing just so the ast time he visited 50 years ago
