Dragon tales and old charm

Tale of a dragon: Part of Sungai Langat runs through the heart of Dengkil town. The name ‘Dengkil’ is said to have originated from the local Chinese community, who called it ‘Ling Kay’ or dragon stream following a legend that a dragon had meditated here for 900 years but was driven away by the British.


DENGKIL is a stark contrast to the ultra-modernity of nearby cities, Putrajaya and Cyberjaya.
