Place in Langkawi Eagle Square Dataran Lang Kedah from Official

Also known as Eagle Square, Dataran Lang is one of Langkawi’s best known manmade attractions, a large sculpture of an eagle poised to take flight. A sight that greets visitors to the island via ferry, the 12 metre-tall statue is one of the island’s most instantly recognizable monuments.

Located at the southeast corner of Pulau Langkawi, besides offering beautiful views of Kuah Bay, Langkawi Eagle Square has beautiful miniature fountains, terraces and bridges, making it the ideal place for those postcard-perfect holiday photos. The square is a good place to watch ferries ply across the harbour but plan a trip here early in the morning or late in the evening when the sun is at its least intense.

The reddish-brown eagle at Dataran Lang was built as an emblem of the island. According to folklore Langkawi’s name came from two Malay words – ‘helang’ (eagle) and ‘kawi’ (reddish brown): hence lang-kawi.

Adjacent to the CHOGM Park and Taman Lagenda Dalam Langkawi, the monument is also within walking distance of some of the best duty-free shops in Langkawi and the Jetty Point Mall – chocolates and alcohol are especially good buys here.

Dataran Lang Should be name as full word Helang " What a nice view"

Our favorite list to go in Langkawi. Very near to the Langkawi Jetty. Nice view. Nice selfie in Langkawi. Everything in here is all good. Except the name Lang should be renamed full as 'helang' it is more meaningful than short word 'lang'. We only know helang in malay dictionary. If not, I am sorry.
