Jalan Dinding, George TownJalan Dinding, George Town (30 July, 2015)

Dindings Lane, translated as Jalan Dinding in Malay, is a short street off Transfer Road in George Town. As with nearby Hutton Lane, Dindings Lane is translated as a "jalan" rather than a "lorong" in Malay, hence Jalan Dinding.

Dindings Lane was named after the islands and territory of Dinding, collectively the Dindings, which formed part of the Straits Settlement. They were ceded to the British in 1826 and reiterated in 1874. The lane leads into the Indian Muslim and Malay settlements off Transfer Road.
