As you see the Pulau Aman Map, there's a Telaga Emas (Golden Well) along the island. According to the history, a villager around 1789, dugs a well and found a tempayan (large earthernware jar for storing water) that turned into golden tempayan. Then the British in Penang heard of the golden tempayan and came to dig and dig the well but they cant find any golden tempayan but a lot of golden coloured pebbles. I guess that why the beach are full of beautifuls pebbles..

The well is situated next to the beach, and yet the well's water taste very fresh and with a lot of large tadpoles inside the water, haha..I dont want to drink that water but used it to wash my hand and face for good luck.. and time for snacking...
