This is a shorten legend of Princess Mussuri.

Princess Mussuri was a very beautiful woman and then she marriaged with the Langkawee Sultan’s brother. Then a war was happened. It caused to Sultan’s brother must to be a warrior.

Somebody slandered that she had a lover. It made her husband decided to execute by a dagger. Before she died she prayed to if she was not wrong, her blood will be white for prove her sincerity and Langkawee island lived without prospering forever.

But a dagger is not irritated on her skin. The Princess told to the executioner to bring a special dagger of her ancestor from her house. When a dagger cut her neck the white blood was spouting. It means to her sincerity.


Her brother was afraid of her grandchild. He just aged 5 months. Her grandchild is only an heir of Mussuri. So they float to Phuket Island and settle down at here. The first generation is Toe Wan and from that day Langkawee island was so quiet. People were not happy with Mussuri’s malediction. Until the 7th generation her heirless is Miss Sirintra  Kayee. So she had been in this fair too.

The performances in that day are very exquisite. Special for anyone who buys the ticket for entrancement, they will get a square umbrella free!
