TOPONYMY
According to a British officer, George Maxwell mentions the place as Mambang Diawan because there was a haunter or an angel coming down from Gunung Bujang Malacca in the venue. Actually it all started with a group of tin miners who had worked hard all day and when they were resting, they saw an angel in the clouds as they were fatigue, therefore, it can be concluded that the name Batang Tonggang changed to Mambang Diawan and subsequently changed to its present name.

TOPONOMI
Mengikut seorang pegawai Inggeris, George Maxwell menyebut tempat tersebut sebagai Mambang Diawan kerana terdapat seorang mambang atau bidadari yang turun dari Gunung Bujang Melaka di tempat berkenaan. Sebenarnya ia bermula dengan sekumpulan pelombong bijih timah yang telah bekerja keras sepanjang hari dan apabila mereka berehat, mereka ternampak bidadari di awan-awan kerana keletihan mereka, oleh itu, dapat disimpulkan bahawa nama Batang Tonggang kemudian menjadi Mambang Diawan dan seterusnya ditukar kepada nama sekarang.
