Historic Site
“Mahsuri’s Moseleum is the center of the legend of Mahsuri, the maiden who was falsely accused of adultery & executed. With her dying breath she cursed the island of Langkawi with inactivity for 7 generations. The “curse” was lifted several years ago and the sleepy island of Langkawi has started to florish. Inside are local houses said to be the original houses of the people in the Legend of Mahsuri. You can sample and buy local malay sweets desserts and batik cloth. Please visit the museum for a better understanding of the history of the island and the legends of Langkawi. Local stalls all around for those wanting to sample northern Laksa.”
