Makam Mahsuri (Mahsuri Mausoleum) Langkawi Island Reviews
The must visit historical landmarks on Langkawi Island Feb 21, 2014
This is my second time visiting Makam Mahsuri. I love this place, love the historical of Mahsuri and if you want to know more about Mahsuri, you are recommended to come here. It will be very easy for you if you can rent a car for only 60MYR - 120MYR per day. So we rent a car (Viva) for 60MYR per day for 3 days trip in Langkawi. It will take you more or less about 30 minutes driving from Kuah to Makam Mahsuri and all the ways we can see a very nice scenery and view of real malay village and padi field. We also can see some Gamat Shops (a very famous traditional medicine in Langkawi)a long the way to Makam Mahsuri. The enterence fee is 7MYR for adult and forsure less for child (cannot remember the fee for child).
Makam Mahsuri (Mahsuri Mausoleum) is the must visit historical landsmarks on Langkawi Island and it is the crypt of the legendary Princess Mahsuri which is located in the village of Mawat, 12km from Kuah. Most of the island’s natural attractions have fables attached in true Malay style and Mahsuri’s Tomb is probably its most famous legend. The story begins with the beautiful Mahsuri, a maiden (or princess by some accounts) born over 200 years ago, who married the love of her life during a time of conflict with the Siamese. Her husband went off to fight in the war and her mother-in-law, jealous of her beauty, vengefully accused Mahsuri of adultery.
So... what can I say about this place?... it is the must visit place buddy!
