This encyclopedic A-to-Z guide explains the meaningsand origins of KL's street names – those named after notable persons, afterprominent landmarks, after local flora and fauna, etc. Themed street nameswithin a particular area are also identified, e.g. the cluster of streets inTaman Sri Bahtera named after traditional Malay boats.
Of particular interest is the renaming of streetsover the years, ranging from literal translations (e.g. “Church Road” becoming“Jalan Gereja”), to completely new names (“Parry Road” to “Jalan P Ramlee”).
