Well, below are some informations that I can share with you guys about what I've watched yesterday. I really recommeded that you all could spend some time & of course your money to watch this great movies yaa!

Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa or The Kedah Annals is an ancient Malay literature that chronicles the bloodline of Merong Mahawangsa and the foundation of the Kedah, a state in Malaysia. Though there are historical accuracies, there are many incredible assertions. The era covered by the text ranged from the opening of Kedah by Merong Mahawangsa, allegedly a descendant of Alexander the Great of Macedonia till the acceptance of Islam.

Merong Mahawangsa was a Buddhist and there were nine Buddhist rulers before Phra Ong Mahawangsa converted to Islam in 1136 and took the name Sultan Mudzafar Shah. The annal also describes Chola's attack on Kedah.The descendants of Phra Ong Mahawangsa is still ruling Kedah able to trace their lineage from Merong Mahawangsa. He named Kedah at that time 'Langkasuka', for which 'Langka' meant 'the land of glory' in Sanskrit, while 'suka' was from the name of the great Buddhist emperor Asoka.

KRU Studios has completed the production of its feature film entitled "Hikayat Merong Mahawangsa", which is also internationally retitled as "The Malay Chronicles: Bloodlines". This epic action adventure, directed by Yusry A. Halim, is loosely based on the myth of its namesake.

KD Mahawangsa is a Royal Malaysian Navy vessel named in the ancient monarch's honor.
