The Seven Wells Of Serendah Or Perigi 7 Serendah

The Seven Wells Of Serendah Or Perigi 7 Serendah

Info: The 7 Wells of Serendah are supposed to be tourist attraction but little information can be found at the location. It is situated in a peaceful and idyllic park on the outskirts of Serendah.

They look like sink holes with the strainers missing. It connects and flows out to a dam on the other side.

A story goes like this: Originally, there were natural whirlpools in the river. For some safety or silly reasons, a crazy British colonial administrator flattened the river and turned it into this bizarre man-made structure. It became The Seven Wells of Serendah (Perigi Tujuh).

Another local told me a more plausible but less romantic story. Serendah is named as such because it is very low-lying (rendah). It was also a tin mining area with many water canals.

Every time it rained in those days, the surrounding villages became flooded quickly as the river and canals overflow. The seven wells and water channels acted as part of a stormwater management system.
