Etymology[edit]

From Ottoman Turkish قالدرم (kaldırım, pavement, paving, paved road, enbankment, dyke, a cross), probably derived from Ottoman Turkish قالدرمق (kaldırmak, to raise, set up, erect).[1] See kaldırmak. Sometimes connected to Ancient Greek καλός (kalós, beautiful) + δρόμος (drómos, path, road), but according to Nişanyan this is a folk etymology.[1]
