你参观了吉隆坡市中心最新的景点——生命之河（River of Life）了吗？。而当你漫步在这个Gombak 河和 Klang河口交汇处时，你是否知道你脚下土地的历史？ 在国文中，Kuala是指两条河流汇合之处，而Lumpur则是泥泞的意思，因此，Kuala Lumpur合在一起就是 “泥泞汇合处”。 尽管如此，吉隆坡地名的由来，还是有其他说法。例如，当初这座城市的名字是Pengkalan Lumpur，也就是泥泞码头的意思。另外，也有人说这个地名来自于广东方言的 “烂芭”，意指泥泞满布的森林地。 吉隆坡地名由来众说纷纭，也缺乏该名字真正来源的确实记载。不过，从各种不同的版本中，我们几乎可以肯定的是，吉隆坡在以前应该就是一片充满泥泞沼泽的森林。 然而，正式因为不同的说法，我们才得以知道许多有趣的故事，从而对脚下的土地有更深的了解。 而以下是EdgeProp.
