I visited the dam during my vacation to my husband’s home town. Penjalin Dam is located at the centre of Winduaji Village (Bumiayu, Central Java, Indonesia). Built in 1930 by Netherland colonial government, Penjalin Dam is prepared for irrigation supplying to the Pemali River down below and rice field area.
Local people around use this dam to add their earnings. Some people are catching fish, taking care of floated fish stalls and renting boats while Eid ul-fitr holiday. On my last visit, I saw lots of visitors and activities there, as every Eid ul-fitr celebration; it’s always held the Recreation Week. I have no chance to ride a boat at that time, as then, the rain was falling hard.
