Melaka River Water Mill

melaka water mill

Water Mill in Melaka River? Yup Melaka will have its own water mill in the heart of Banda Hilir near Quay Side Restaurant and accross it (the river) are the OCBC Bank. This watermill will be powered by the Melaka River and it is said to be name the ‘Melaka Sultanate Water Mill.’ Although the function is not for agriculture irrigation system or crushing a flour, it will soon to be a tourist attraction.

As Chief Operation Officer at Kumpulan Melaka Berhad, a State Own Company Mr. Ismail Lajen Said, the water mill is 90percent complete. The construction for the Melaka water mill started September last year. The 13 meter water mill cost about RM1.5 million. At present, final work on installing the water mill bucket, platform and bricks floor are actively carried out. The water mill bucket will scoop Melaka river water and the water will be poured into a man made pond and goes back to the river again.

Well, when completed we can enjoy lunch / dinner at restaurant nearby while hearing the clunking sound of the water mill in operation plus the water pours back into the river like natures music into our ears..maybe like the famous Historic water mill in the world at Hama, Syria.
