The Bujang valley is a historical site in southern Kedah on the slopes of Mt Jerai, not far from the coast. Here there are the remains of an ancient hindu-Buddhist civilisation dating back to over 2500 years. Relics and ruins have been found over an area of 224 kmĀ². Tourists usually visit the Bujang valley archaeological museum near Merbok. This lies in a compound with a parking and is reachable by car. Inside the compound are the ruins of ancient temples (candis) which have been relocated here from elsewhere in the valley.
