Dengkil is a mukim in Sepang District, Selangor, Malaysia. According to the history, the name "Dengkil" was given by a Tok Batin named Nalih a / l Jembik. "Dengkil" means durian fruit that has a large seed. At that time, there are many durian trees on the banks of the Langat River which often bear fruit and are called by the indigenous people as "Dingkil". Then, the name changed to "Dengkil" until it was called Kampung Dengkil until now. The folks here also said that Kampung Dengkil is derived from Langat River which means "Dengkat" which means shallow. After that, the word "Dengkat" turns into Dengkil until now.
