Poisoned Well @ Bukit Melawati

This is a well with cement plaster and round in shape which is located at the edge of the road to Bukit Melawati. This well is said to be poisoned well and it was the place for torturing traitors during the earlier era.

The water of the well is poisoned by the sprinkling of a concoction of various types of poisons such as poisonous saps and fine hairs of the bamboo shoot. In the earlier days, a person found to be guilty of a grave offence would be immersed in the said well and filled with poisonous fluid up to the chin and which would result in the said traitor to undergo extreme agony and eventually die.
