Kinta district was one of the major tin producers in the 18th century. According to an old tale, Kinta was named after a river. Once, there was a group of explorers lead by Tok Changkat Piatu on their way to set up a settlement. In their journey crossing the river, they heard bell-like sound. What makes them curious was that there’s a lizard trying to cross the river too and whenever the lizard stops, the bell-like sound stops too. Hence, Tok Changkat Piatu named the river ‘Sungai Genta’. His name also been changed to Dato Panglima Kulop Genta. Overtime, the spelling in Arabic jawi for Genta consisted of the alphabet qaf, nun and ta was pronounced as Kinta.
