Bujang山谷是座富有了价值的古文明遗迹，范围向四处伸展，占地约224平方公里。位置坐落邻近吉打州的Merbok，北方为日来山峰及南方为Muda河。古迹显示这一带曾出现过古印度王朝，可追溯到至少2000年前。超过50座名为Candi的古墓殿已出土，而最伟观又保持得最完整的古殿则坐落在Pengkalan Bujang，Bujang山谷博物院也在此。在这区域里Sungai Batu出土的码头遗迹，炼铁器及古碑为公元110年，可说是东南亚史上最早的人造物。
The Bujang Valley or Lembah Bujang is a sprawling historical complex and has an area of approximately 224 square km. Situated near Merbok, Kedah, between Gunung Jerai in the north and Muda River in the south, it is the richest archaeological area in Malaysia.
These archaeological remains show that there was a Hindu-Buddhist polity here. The name itself is roughly translated into "Dragon Valley". The area consists of ruins that may date more than 2000 years old. More than fifty ancient tomb temples, called candi (pronounce "chandi"), have also been unearthed. The most impressive and well-preserved of these is located in Pengkalan Bujang, Merbok. The Bujang Valley Archaeological Museum is also located here. In the area of Bujang Valley known as Sungai Batu, excavation have revealed jetty remains, iron smelting sites, and a clay brick monument dating back to 110AD, making it the oldest man-made structure to be recorded in Southeast Asia.

The building of Bujang Valley Archaeology Muzium.
Some archaeology displays withn the site.
The map near the carpark area shown that there is a trail can lead to Gunung Jerai summit..
A special to this place is, there is a waterfall picnic area next to the muzium, And this waterfall it just like a big nature water slide. But due to absence of good landing point. It's not advisable to slide down from the top.
Standing at the top of the slide. (Beware of the slippery surface!)
We walked to the upper river, just saw a small cascade within a water catchment area and another cascade above (picture below), no impressive cascade found.
