Eagle Square

Eagle Square is Langkawi's most prominent landmark for visitors arriving by sea. Situated near the Kuah jetty, the main attraction of the square is the magnificent statue of the reddish brown eagle majestically poised for flight. According to local folklore, Langkawi derived its name from- the eagle or "helang". In old Malay, "kawi" denotes reddish brown - hence, Langkawi means reddish brown eagle!

One of the most prominent Langkawi Island attractions and landmark here is "Dataran Lang" which is situated near the Kuah Jetty.

Dataran Lang, which, when translated to English means "Eagle Square", is where you would see the famous magnificent marble statue of a reddish brown eagle that is majestically poised for flight.

The 12-metre tall Eagle statue sits high at the centre of a massive star-shaped concrete platform that juts out to the sea.

Eagle Square comprises the Eagle statue, a high-roofed pavilion where events are held and kiosks selling anything from tidbits to souvenirs.

The eagle is also the first landmark you would see when you travel to Langkawi Island by sea. This magnificent statue stands proudly facing the sea, welcoming you to this legendary island.

Dataran Lang is designed with unique architectural concepts with picturesque terraces, beautiful ponds, scenic bridges, restaurants and barrel vaults, which are made of bricks.

This square is equally beautiful at night as it is during the day. You can still see the Eagle statue clearly at night as it is radiantly illuminated at night.

Dataran Lang is situated near the Jetty Point Mall, adjacent to the CHOGM Park and Taman Legenda. This square is open to everyone at all times.

This is definitely one of the Langkawi Island Attractions you wouldn't want to miss!
