Mahsuri's tomb (makam Mahsuri)

who's Mahsuri?

  • a daughter of a Thai couple who moved from their native Phuket to the island of Langkawi in search of a better life.

  • the most beautiful in all of Langkawi and married the warrior Wan Darus.

  • As was required of him, her husband had to go to war, leaving Mahsuri behind to fend for herself. 

  • During the absence of her husband, she befriended a young man named Deraman.

  • The village chief's wife was jealous of Mahsuri's beauty. She spread a rumour that Mahsuri was unfaithful and was having an affair with Deraman in the absence of Wan Darus. Eventually the rumours grew strong enough that the villagers openly accused her of adultery. Mahsuri pleaded her innocence, but no one believed her.

  • She was to be tied to a tree or pole and stabbed to death but it didn't work.

  • After every execution attempt failed, Mahsuri told them to kill her with her family's kris.

  • When she was stabbed, white blood flowed from the wound, signifying her innocence. Some birds flew above her to cover her body.

  • With her dying breath, Mahsuri cursed Langkawi to have seven generations of bad luck. The kingdom was soon taken over by Siam.

  • The villagers at Padang Mat Sirat burned their own paddy fields rather than let them fall into the hands of the Siamese. 

burnt rice (beras terbakar)
could u see the black stains which indicate that the rice was burnt?

following Mahsuri's death, it had been decades of failed crops and Langkawi was attacked by Siam for several times and the last invasion was in 1821.
It is only at the end of the 20th century, after the seven generations have supposedly come to pass, that Langkawi began to prosper as a tourist destination.
The descendants of Mahsuri continue to live in Phuket, Thailand, and have on occasion returned to Langkawi to visit her tomb.

*above are all googled infos due to unclear video that was shown during the visit and my short term memory and also my laziness  to read all the facts..huhu.
