One of the infamous spot in Langkawi that features the huge, mighty eagle statue, looking over the waterfront plaza. A trip to Langkawi is considered incomplete if there is no photo of this statue. Eagle Square or better known as Dataran Lang, is the landmark of Langkawi. The statue of the coppery-brown colour of the eagle is the emblem of the island. Based on folklore, the name of Langkawi is derived from two Malay words; Helang as in eagle and Kawi as in the reddish-brown colour. Took those two and combined, the name Langkawi was born and thus, the statue of the eagle is the perfect representative of the origin of the name. The Eagle Square is located just beside the Kuah Jetty, and a kilometre away from the Lagenda Park. There is no entrance fee and the place is open 24/7.
