Legend of Ayer Hangat Village
The story says that two giants Mat Cincang and Mat Raya got engaged into a heavy fight during the wedding of Cincang’s Son with Raya’s daughter. Raya noticed that the groom was flirting with another woman during the wedding reception. The brawl got so nasty that they started throwing pots, pans and jugs towards each other.
The two giants have the save names as the two largest mountains in Langkawi.
It is said that a jug full of boiling hot water fell on the place that today is the hot springs. ‘Air’ means ‘Water’ in Malay and ‘Hangat’ means ‘Hot’. So Air Hangat means Hot Water.
However the real scientific reason behind this hot water spring is quite different. The rocks under the islands surface here are quite hot due to geothermal heating. The deeper layers of earth’s crust are even warmer. So the water which is in contact with the rocks at a depth get warmed up and come out as hot springs.
