Lake of the Pregnant Maiden, Pulau Dayang

3.2
#6 of 14 in Nature in Kedah
Experience the cooling waters of Lake of the Pregnant Maiden, a large body of emerald green water. Legend has it that a celestial princess, Mambang Sari, enjoyed bathing here; she met a prince while swimming, fell in love with him, married him, and gave birth to his child. After just seven days, the child died, and the grieving princess left its body in the lake before returning to the stars. Surrounded by limestone cliffs and colored a deep green hue, you can understand the desire to understand the lake in spiritual terms. The waters make for serene swimming, or you can rent a kayak or pedal boat on site. By using our Pulau Dayang visit planner, you can arrange your visit to Lake of the Pregnant Maiden and other attractions in Pulau Dayang.

    We went in a group and we thoroughly enjoyed the nature's beauty and clean water. We thought we'll spend 15 mins in the lake but ended up spending more than 3 hours. Kids enjoyed the place too.  more »

    This Lake is quite far away, reached it long. But the most important thing is that it may become magical for you as it was for me. When 10 years various attempts to make offspring were unsuccessful, I relaxed and decided to just wait for a miracle. I was on a lake in February 2009 year, and after 9 months I became pregnant and gave birth to a wonderful boy (he soon 6). He reminded me about this Lake (small as Lake tale told at night) when I learned that my friend long are no longer kids. Perhaps someone would like to know about this effect from swimming in the Lake. I hope and wish you happiness!
