Langkawi Time: Mahsuri Mausoleum

Must-to-go-place; Mahsuri Mausoleum

Our first stop place is absolutely the synomyn of langkawi Island itself. Mahsuri Mausoluem. It's located at Kampung Mawat.

The significance of this place it is the tomb of Mahsuri, a virtous maiden. As we know that, Mahsuri as per the legend, at her execution, she bled white blood; that is believed to signify her innocence. In her last breath, she laid a curse that the island would hang about barren for no less than seven generations. Whether it's real or fictional, the seven generations have passed and at present, Langkawi is a prosperous tourist destination on the tourism charts of Malaysia. To respect the belief of the islanders, this mausoleum was built with the hope that Mahsuri, when seven generations have passed, will finally rest in peace.[voyage99]. For more on HERE.

In the premises of the mausoleum lies the Mahsuri's tomb, a well, an aviary and a conventional house. Beside the tomb, the whole story of the maiden is written on a panel. The waters of Mahsuri's well are said to have healing properties. In the aviary, one can check out the exotic variety of birds along with peacocks, while the traditional house is a host to ancient artifacts of Langkawi.

Do you know that, In the aviary, the exotic variety of birds from the peacock until the duck have an adorable reaction to the camera. First I thought they'll run over the corner of aviary. But, that's not what I expected first. Just so cute animal, this is what I can said. They're so friendly. Keep posing in front of camera when we're want to capture them. Believing me. You just try it first. You'll know it.

Till then with the next stop.
