Overview

A trip to Langkawi would not be complete without visiting Mahsuri's Mausoleum. Mahsuri was a fair maiden who was wrongly accused of adultery and hastily sentenced to death. Legend has it that no weapon could kill her until they used Mahsuri's own kris (traditional Malay dagger). She bled white blood after the execution, which is said to signify her innocence. With her dying breath, she laid a curse that the island would not prosper for seven generations. The fine white marbled mausoleum was erected at the spot where she was entombed.
