Beras Terbakar

Short Brief

This is historical landmark of langkawi. Locally the place is known as Beras Terbakar which means Field of Burnt Rice. Although there is nothing much to see there now, it has a lot of historic significance. When the battle broke out between Siam and Langkawi at Pancur Straits in 1821, at one stage the then chief of Langkawi’s Army Dato Kemboja realized that soon the Siamese would capture the island. Other than that you can see small portion shop that sell minyak gamat, kain batik and also surviniour. Burnt rice was discovered when the land owner built this house. Actually it’s a private land but they are opening their place for visiting and to see burnt rice and the place where it was discovered. Why this place important is, it’s an evidence of an ancient battle was happened here. So it makes us feeling that we are standing and living on continuous history from the ancient people.
