房屋趣:七个地名的由来

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.
