The origin of “Geylang” and “Serai”
The word “Geylang” is derived from the Geylang River, and some of the earliest spellings are “Gellang” and “Gelang” found in early 19th century Dutch and British maps. These spellings indicate that the Geylang River was likely named after a specific tribe of Orang Laut (sea nomads) who were located on the banks of the river and were originally from the islands of the Riau Archipelago. The current spelling of “Geylang” was only formalised in the 1030s when colonial governments began spelling it on survey maps.
“Serai” refers to the lemongrass and citronella plants that were grown in the late 19th century on a plantation called the Perseverance Estate. Located between Paya Lebar Road and Jalan Eunos, this plantation was only accessible via Geylang Road for a while. Due to the success of the plantation between the 1860s and 1890s, the area is closely associated with lemongrass and citronella.
“Geylang”一词源自芽笼河,在 19 世纪早期的荷兰和英国地图中发现的一些最早的拼写是“Gellang”和“Gelang”。 这些拼写表明芽笼河很可能以原住民(海上游牧民族)的一个特定部落命名,该部落位于河岸,最初来自廖内群岛的岛屿。 目前的“Geylang”拼写是在 1030 年代殖民政府开始在测量地图上拼写时才正式确定的。
“Serai”指的是 19 世纪后期在名为 Perseverance Estate 的种植园中种植的柠檬草和香茅植物。 这个种植园位于巴耶利峇路和惹兰友诺士之间,有一段时间只能通过芽笼路到达。 由于种植园在 1860 年代和 1890 年代之间取得成功,该地区与柠檬草和香茅密切相关。

Former Karikar Mahal
A pale-bluish mansion occupies a large parcel of land at the junction of Still Road South and St Patrick’s Roads. It is the former residence of a rich Indian merchant – Karikal Mahal.
In 1917, the wealthy cattle merchant Moona Kadir Sultan bought the land and built a large mansion for his numerous wives. Completed three years later, this magnificent mansion consists of four houses with luxurious gardens, fountains and a beautiful sculpture of angels by the artificial lake. Modeled on a mix of Victorian, Italian and Indian styles, the entire project cost $500,000, a huge sum in the 1920s.
In 1947, the property was sold to a local company, the Lee Rubber Company, which converted the mansion into a 20-room budget hotel, named the Renaissance Grand Hotel.
The government acquired part of the land in 1973 to build a major road linking the north part (Joo Chiat area) to south. Still Road cuts through the occupied land, separating the garden from the mansion. Today, one can still see small old houses on a barren piece of land directly opposite the Grand Hotel, most likely the servant quarters of the former Karikar Mahal.
1917 年,富有的牛商穆纳卡迪尔苏丹买下了这块土地,并为他的众多妻子建造了一座大宅邸。这座宏伟的豪宅在三年后竣工,由四栋房屋组成,带有豪华花园、喷泉和人工湖畔美丽的天使雕塑。整个项目以维多利亚、意大利和印度风格的混合设计为蓝本,耗资 50 万美元,在 20 年代是一笔巨款。
政府于 1973 年收购了部分土地,以建设一条连接北部(如切地区)和南部的主要道路。 史蒂尔路穿过被占领的土地,将花园与豪宅分开。今天,人们仍然可以在大酒店正对面的一块贫瘠土地上看到一些小老房子,这些房子很可能是前卡里卡尔玛哈尔的仆人宿舍。
