A New Exploration on the Origin and the Meaning of the Term "Cheli" for Xishuangbanna

HE Ping(Research Center of the Ethnic Economy and Culture of Southwest China Frontier, Yunnan University, Kunming, Yunnan, 650091, China)  
Cheli is one of the ancient names of Xishuangbannan. Where does it come from? What is the meaning of it? Explanations given by some scholars are hardly convincing because of insufficient evidence. This paper, based on textual research and the analysis of the Thai language, concludes that Cheli is the transliteration of the word Buddhist pagoda in the Thai language.
