Abstract

Environmental toponyms for rivers, lakes, and other features with their own uniqueness are documented in the Muarajambi temple area. The question is where did these names come from Therefore, the aim of this study was to a) describe the unique toponyms in the Muarajambi temple complex, b) identify the origins of these names, and c) describe the aspects that influence these names. The research method used was a qualitative method in which data collection was done through observation and interviews. The results show that the toponyms were determined based on appearance and cultural aspects. The predominant appearance aspects are florae and faunae. The predominant cultural aspect is folklore.
