The City of the Lion
Hundreds of years ago there was a powerful king called Sang Nila Utama. He lived in Palembang in Southern Sumatra and ruled the kingdoms of the Sri Vijaya Empire.
One day, the king decided to travel to the Island of Bentang. When the ships were ready, he and his followers set out. While they were at sea a fierce storm blew up; the wind howled and the sea became very rough.
"Your Majesty, it is dangerous to travel in such weather," said the captain of Sang Nila Utama's ship. "Tumasik Island is nearby, and we could stay there until the storm is over."
The King agreed, and so the ships left the stormy sea and sailed into the safe and quiet harbor of Tumasik.
"Since we're here, we should have a look around," said the King.
Sang Nila Utama and his followers then left their ships to explore the island. It was heavily wooded and had many beautiful flowers. As the men walked further from the sea, Sang Nila Utama suddenly saw a fine large animal. Its body was as red as the sunset; its head was black and its breast was snowy white. Larger than a goat, the animal moved quickly and soon disappeared into the dark forest.
"What was that?" asked the King. "I have never seen such a strange and wonderful animal."
"It's a lion," replied one of his followers.
"If the animals here are as fine and fierce as lions, this would be a good place to start a new kingdom," said the King.
"I agree," said a prince, "But, I think we should rename the island to mark your visit."
"Good idea," said Sang Nila Utama, "I think we should call it 'Singapura', the City of the Lion."
