Mahsuri - Another Legend & Another Tales @ Langkawi.

 Makam Mahsuri is a area that memorializes a woman whom is believed in causing the fall and rise of Langkawi for seven generations. According to folklore, she was accused of adultery and executed by stabbing. Her tomb, Makam Mahsuri, has become a tourist attraction on the Langkawi island.

Following the old Islamic punishment for adultery, Mahsuri was to be tied to a tree and stabbed to death. When they stabbed her, white blood flowed from her wound, signifying her innocence. With her dying breath, Mahsuri cursed Langkawi to have seven generations of bad luck.
