bujang-valleyArchaeological Tours

The Bujang Valley or Lembah Bujang is the richest archaeological site in Malaysia to-date. Lying north of  the river mouth of Muda river in the state of Kedah, Malaysia, spreading over an area of approximately 300 sq km, this archaeological site has excavated more than 50 candi or ancient tomb temples and many other historical remains and artifacts that provide strong evidence of possible Hindu-Buddhist kingdom existence in this land more that 1500 years ago.

Relics discovered in the Bujang valley including metal tools and ornaments, pottery, ceramics, inscribed stone caskets and Hindu coins. Most of these relics are display in the Bujang Valley Archaeological Museum in Pengkalan Bujang, Merbok where the  most well preserved candi is also located here.

Visitors travelling from Kuala Lumpur or Penang can take the north bound highway and exit from the Sungai Petani (North) Toll. It takes another 30 minutes drive by trunk road right up to the Bujang Valley Archaeological Museum.
