Old Town Temecula Rich in history and traditions, Temecula was established in 1859. Temecula gets its name from the Luiseno Indian Band word "Temecunga" from "teme" meaning "sun" and "nga" meaning "the place of the sun." The Luiseno indians lived in the area during the 1700's. Later the Spanish interpreted and spelled the word as "Temecula." Its latest interpretation is "The City That Shines Through The Mist".
