Kota Kayang State Musuem
Well worth a look
What we say:
Kota Kayang is a very organised and informative museum only a 15-minute drive out of Kangar town, set amid limestone karsts draped in lush jungle. It is well worth making a stop here on the way to Kuala Perlis. Inside you'll take part in a history lesson that began more than 5,000 years ago: Archaeological finds show that a people descended from hill tribes in today's Vietnam hunted and farmed these fertile lands. Since the museum is not too big, people can take their time to read and admire everything from ancient Buddhist sculptures, and golden items and gems discovered in the Kayang area, through to historical narratives about the region.
