[Klang] and [Gombak] Rivers Confluence is the point where the smaller Gombak River (Sungei Gombak) joins the larger Klang River (Sungei Klang). There is a popular theory that Kuala Lumpur was named after this muddy confluence in the 1800s. Kuala Lumpur was probably simplified from the word Pengkalan Lumpur or muddy jetty in Malay. This is the very spot for Kuala Lumpur's history where the early settlers of Kuala Lumpur built their shacks around it. In the 1850s, early miners would unload their equipment and provisions here. They would then trek up the jungle path to Ampang where they would dig for tin. They would then send the tin ingots to the same landing point at this confluence where they were shipped downstream to Pengkalan Batu. By 1859, Kuala Lumpur was a bustling exporter of tin and became a state capital by 1896.
