Muzium Kota Kayang is one of the museums in Perlis Indera Kayangan, a state in the north of Malaysia. It is situated in a complex comprising a few building and a park, among hills. You can find the museum using Waze or Google Map.
|Where to start?|
There are 5 galleries in the museum complex. 3 are in one building while the other 2 galleries are on another building.
- History Gallery
- Archaeological Gallery
- Weapon Gallery
- Royal Gallery
- Cultural Gallery
There is also a tomb and cave within the complex. I started exploring the museum complex starting from the Gua Kayang (Kayang Cave) and Al-Marhum Kayang's tomb.

|The fella said he could see light on the other side of the cave but we didn't venture in|
|path to the park. I love this spot!|
I could understand how some people thought it was the 'kayangan' (heaven/paradise). The huge rocks lent a mysterious air to the path which opens out to a park.

Couldn't take the Perlis scotching sun too long. So I went into the galleries (and aircond).
|They have library, kids activity room, etc.|
|"Bukit ni kita nak bagi nama apa? Banyak bukit kita jumpa di sini"|
|Jon Snow's bastard sword should look like this :P|
Then to the other side for the other 2 galleries...
|A copper fan. I wonder how well does it fan?|
That's another state museum in Malaysia off my list!
