Semenyih is a mukim and town in Hulu Langat District, Selangor, Malaysia along the Kajang–Seremban road. The meaning of the name of the town is uncertain and it does not appear in any dictionary. It was derived from the locals and is related to its past. According to an oral story, it is based from a word in the Negeri Sembilan dialect, meaning "hidden" - the standard Malay word for "hidden" will be sembunyi.SituationThe town is becoming less and less "hidden" as the Kuala Lumpur conurbation (usually called the Klang Valley) expands. The town shares its name with the Semenyih River, which is the main river passing near the town. The catchment area of this river is an important source of water for Kuala Lumpur and other parts of the Klang Valley.The surrounding area is quite hilly, the highest peak nearby being Bukit Arang, 560 m (1838 ft) high. This makes the area home to numerous scenic waterfalls. A more popular tourist attraction in the town is the Ostrich Wonderland Show Farm. The town is rapidly becoming more accessible, thanks to new highways, and more attractive due to new development (including, for example, the Malaysian campus of the University of Nottingham). This transformation from town to metropolis is also reflected in the growth in its population. The 15100 people recorded in the 1991 census had grown to over 45000 by 2000. This corresponds to an annual growth rate of 12.9%, compared with the national average of 2.66% over the same period.
