When travelling around in Singapore, you will likely visit this place called Dhoby Ghaut, especially if you are travelling on the MRT (the local subway/metro). Dhoby Ghaut is on the North-South line (red line), the North-East line (purple line) and the Circle line (yellow line) in central Sinagapore area.
Often, tourists are mind boggled by the strange names that places in Singapore have. The stories behind these names are really interesting!
Dhoby is a Hindi word meaning “laundrymen”; Ghaut is also a Hindi word meaning “by the river side’. In the olden days in Singapore, Dhoby Ghaut used to be by the river side, and Indian men staying around the area used to do their laundry at the bank of the river.
