There are a few versions to the origin of the town’s name. It was thought that Bukit Timah means ‘tin-bearing
hill’, as a direct translation from Malay. Others believed Bukit Timah was a misinterpretation of the words
‘Bukit Temak’, which aptly means ‘hill of the temak trees’.

Today, Geylang is known as a bustling multi-cultural HDB population lives in the area, which continues to
be known for its rich Malay heritage. The word Geylang is of Malay origin and is likely to be a variation of
the word ‘kilang’, meaning press, mill, or factory, many of which were common in the area.

The Kallang housing estate is one of Singapore's oldest housing estates, and the site of Singapore’s first airport,
Kallang Airport, which was opened in 1937. The name Kallang, was derived from the Malay term referring to the
‘orang laut’, or sea gypsies who lived by the Kallang and Singapore River. Another explanation of its origins is
from the Malay word ‘kilang’ or mill/ factory, many of which operated in that area.
