Structural analysis is a study on the physical appearance of rock units with respect to their deformation history. This research was conducted at Limau Kasturi, Gua Musang, Kelantan to understand the geology of the study area. The objectives for this research are to produce an updated geological map of study area, to analyze the fault and joint forces and deformation in the study area that can be determine by using stereographic projection. The method use is geological mapping in order to identify the geomorphology, lithology, and geological structure in the study area. Based on this research, the lithology that was found are shale, marble, phyllite and granite. The oldest lithology identified is shale that comes from Middle Permian to Upper Triassic age while the youngest lithology is granite that might formed during Upper Triassic. To determine the deformation process that formed the land morphology, a detailed field study was executed on the structural features in the study area such as folds, joints and faults by using stereonet software. From the investigation, the main force that forms the surrounding landform is from NE-SW.
