they have upgraded mahsuri's tomb into a complex, therefore we need to pay ticket to enter. Beside the tomb there are diorama museum with life gamelan music played by local people, and few of old and tradisional houses used during mahsuri's time.

The price ticket is way too much. IMHO even half of the price still wont give you any justice. Just the same information you can get from the net.

Small area with a Mahsuri tomb, few traditional Kedah's houses. They also have a Caklempong (traditional musical intrument) show. Few stalls inside to eat including Laksa. RM12 for adult and RM 6 for kids from 3-12 yo (domestic). Nice view of paddy field of course. Open from 8am.

This place principally tells the story of mahsuri, which is repeated in various forms at various points, not much to do there, can be avoided

This place is very historical n its closely associated w Langkawi. Its a story of ill feelings, jealousy, revenge that seems still to be in the lifestyle of man. The place can be maintained better.

The story really is fantastic & well worth the visit to understand the woman & the legend. Unfortunately there is more tourist shops here than actual information. It is still worth a visit & the 17R entrance fee is very reasonable.

This visit was to learn the history and curse brought to the island by the killing of a lady named mahsuri. It was a bit too touristy as when you walk in, you walk into a buying area first and not the history and information of the person and place

This place is a sentimental memorial to a chaste good woman who was executed unfairly. The video they show is slightly cheesy, but wandering around the garden and appreciating the traditional Malay architecture is fun.

the area is divided into the tomb itself, some traditional houses and also small museum. the traditional houses are of different types, which depicts the different levels of the people (village head, the typical home, warrior's home, etc.) used to have traditional shows, but it was not available when we were there, apparently only during peak periods, i.e. school holidays....
