Kota Mahsuri

The mausoleum Kota Mahsuri at Kampung Mwat has become a major tourist attraction located 17 kilometres northwest of Kuah, on Langkawi. The tomb honours a young maiden, wrongly accused of adultery approximately 200 years ago; legend has it that her innocence was proven by her bleeding white blood at her execution by stabbing. Apparently, upon her dying breath she cursed the island to remain barren for seven generations. True or not, that time has now elapsed and the place is flourishing. Alongside the tomb, there is a well, an aviary, and a traditional Kedah house within the complex.

  • Visit the famous well at Kota Mahsuri mausoleum in Langkawi, the waters of which are said to have healing properties, which have people queuing around the block to sample.
  • Take a walk around the huge aviary located within Kota Mahsuri mausoleum and admire the many exotic birds housed within, especially the different varieties of fabulous peacocks with their vivid colours.
  • Taste some wonderful traditional Malay delicacies, whilst watching fascinating cultural performance shows, close to the mausoleum complex in Langkawi.

Padang Matsirat is the airport servicing Langkawi, and is approximately 20 kilometres from the town of Kuah, which is the destination for those heading to the mausoleum at Kota Mahsuri. If you are comfortable aboard a motorcycle then this is without doubt the best means of transport on the island. They can be hired very cheaply and enable you to nip about at your own leisure. Taxis provide the other main alternative, although prices need to be set before departure. Buses, however, are not exactly reliable, with timetables that seemingly count for nothing.
