LOKASI

LOCATION
Kampung Kedai Lalat is situated approximately 15 minutes from Kota Bharu.

TOPONOMI
Dulu kawasan ini dikenali sebagai Jembal. Selepas 1922, kawasan itu telah berubah kepada nama Kedai Lalat dengan secara tidak dirancang. Pekan tersebut dikunjungi oleh ramai penjual dan pembeli dalam masa yang singkat sahaja (seperti lalat). Disebabkan kerana itu pekan ini dinamakan Kedai Lalat (Tengku Hafez, 2012). Kerana nama nya tak sedap di dengar maka telah di tukar menjadi Kota Jembal oleh Menteri Besar Kelantan (Tuan Guru Nik Ab.Aziz (Youtube, 2012)  tapi orang tetap panggil Kedai Lalat juga (Mobydick, 2010)

TOPONYMY
The area was once known as Jembal but was changed to Kedai Lalat (which can be translated to ‘The Shop of Flies’) without much planning in 1922. The town had been overcome with a large number of traders and buyers in a short amount of time, much like the occurrence of flies in a shop, and as a result, the town was renamed Kedai Lalat (Tengku Hafez, 2012). The name was not a very pleasing one and so it was officially changed to ‘Kota Jembal’ by the Chief Minister of Kelantan (Tuan Guru Nik Ab.Aziz Youtube, 2012)  though it did not stop the locals from continuing to refer to it as ‘Kedai Lalat’ (Mobydick, 2010).
