via New Straits Times, 26 August 2022: Trying to build tourism around two historic tombs in Kedah.
A part from being one of the oldest kingdoms in Southeast Asia, Kedah is also one of the states in Peninsular Malaysia with the longest history based on evidence gathered from the Sungai Batu archaeological site in Bedong.
These characteristics have made Kedah among the most established with regard to heritage sites. Sadly, these sites are now in neglect and rarely visited by domestic and international visitors.
Two heritage sites that are well-known among locals are Makam Tunku Anum and Makam Puteri Lindungan Bulan.
The former is situated in the middle of a village and is the tomb of a significant historical figure in the state.
