Telaga Tujuh Serendah, also known as Perigi Tujuh, translates as Seven Wells and is a little known part of Malaysia’s heritage. What it is, is a small dam with seven sluices which are fed by water through seven sink holes or spillways. These spillways act like plug holes in a bath and allow the water collecting in the upstream lake to drain gently (or not so gently during a downpour). While use of sink holes may be rare, or even unique, in Malaysia it is not uncommon in dam design elsewhere in the world. This method helps control the rate of flow into a downstream area without putting the dam under too much stress. The dam was designed for flood prevention as the river flows directly into Serendah’s built up area after passing through the dam. Alternatively it could have been built to control the water levels in the tin mining excavations which were abundant in the surrounding area. On top of the dam are a couple of gazebos, making it a good place for a relaxing picnic.
